Death Valley #NationalPark in #California is famous for its intense summer heat, but this time of year, night temperatures dip into the 40s and clear skies reveal the fantastic starscape above. #DeathValley's natural darkness led to its designation as the third and largest International Dark Sky Park. Space fans should know, park rangers offer night sky programs and hold stargazing events with astronomy organizations throughout the winter.

@usinterior I'm curious about the best place to stargaze in the park. North side sky is brightly lit by 29 Palms and south side sky by Indio. What's left?

Yes, if you only see the park during the day, you’re missing the best part!

@obrienmedia Didn’t know there were Joshua Trees in Death Valley! Maybe we should go here in March and you can bring your telescope?
