Head in the clouds: top stargazing sites

There’s nothing quite like spending a warm summer’s night looking up at the stars and getting lost in your own thoughts, but the views from our home cities often provide a restricted view of the sparkling night sky. There are, however, some splendid spots around the world that offer a completely open and welcoming view of all the universe has to offer.

Forget cloudy skies and street lamp glares and join us as we take a look at the top spots for stargazing from all around the world.

Mauna Kea, Hawaii
Mauna Kea, Hawaii

It’s not just plants and wildlife that are abundant in Hawaii, once the sun has set on the horizon the skies are lit with twinkling stars to create a view that looks almost to amazing to be real. Head to Mauna Kea, one of the most renowned observatories in the world, to view the night’s sky from the top of a 13,796-foot volcano.

Big Pine Key, Florida

Florida is home to more than just amusement parks and great beaches, as the sun goes down the stargazers come out to marvel at the great views on offer. Pine Key is one of the few places is the U.S where you can catch a glimpse of the Southern Cross, and is a must-see for astrology enthusiasts.

Yangtze River Valley, China
