About the Event

Utah is home to some of the darkest skies on earth and currently leads the world in dark sky preservation with 24 accredited International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) places. With good planning and community support, dark sky preservation and astrotourism is a responsible and sustainable form of tourism that encourages overnight stays, distributes visitation around the state and educates visitors about Utah. Astrotourism could lead to an estimated $5.8 billion in spending in the Colorado Plateau and support over 113,000 new jobs in the next 10 years.

Utah’s 24 accredited International Dark-Sky Association places include Natural Bridges National Monument, the first ever dark sky designated park in the world, all five of Utah’s Mighty 5® national parks, 10 state parks, two towns and more. Visitors and residents can go to visitutah.com/stars for a suite of resources to learn how to experience, enjoy and protect the state's vast night skies.
