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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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