Wonders of the Night Sky – Winter

Home / Wonders of the Night Sky – Winter

Half the park is after dark!

The night sky in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks is one of the darkest in the State of California. Explore the Wonders of the Night Sky on this naked-eye astronomy program, where we will take you on a visual tour through the stars and constellations!

Meet at the Wuksachi Lodge Lobby, located 1 hour into Sequoia National Park, for introductions and safety talk before we begin our Adventure. After the one-hour program, we will end the tour right where we started.
