On The Next Clear Night, Step Outside To Spot These 10 Astronomical Marvels In The Sky Above West Virginia

In my experience, there’s almost nothing more magical than stargazing. Spotting constellations only adds to the magic: it’s a galactic treasure hunt and a way to connect with an unfathomable universe. And it just so happens that West Virginia is one of the best states in the U.S. for examining the heavens — our mountains put us close to the sky; our small cities and large rural areas ensure a lack of light pollution in many places. So on the next clear night, step outside and try to spot these famous astronomical marvels.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Oh, and don’t forget about the April Lyrids meteor shower later this month!
