Our Mission: To celebrate, promote, and protect the glorious dark skies of Flagstaff and Northern Arizona

Setting the Gold Standard for night sky protection

A dark, star-filled night sky is often thought of as important for astronomy or research. Though this is true, the grandeur of the night sky is much deeper and broader, and accessible to anyone. We find the beauty and meaning of natural night is best expressed by poets and writers, such as Henry Beston.
