Lonely Planet’s Dark Skies, the first world’s guide to astrotourism, can help you experience the sweep of the Milky Way, the remains of comets burning up in our atmosphere, or the shimmering aurora.

Meticulously researched by dark sky expert Valerie Stimac, this comprehensive companion includes guides to 35 dark-sky sites and national parks, where to see the aurora, the next decade of total solar eclipses and how to view rocket launches, plus the lowdown on commercial space flight, observatories and meteor showers.
