Dark Sky Sites

Here is your chance to learn from astronomers who have gone before you!  Find out which are the best Dark Sky sites in and around the Bay Area using our subjective rating system from 1-10 (where 1 is lame and 10 is awesome).

The ratings are largely subjective, but we have tried hard to ‘average’ the ratings across a number of members.   This being a Dark Sky Site list, the primary factor assessed is the absence of street and ambient light but also factors like fog and cloud which can make an otherwise ideal site, unworthy of ‘Dark Sky’ status.
