Bring your telescope with you when you come camping at Bass Harbor Campground. The light pollution here is practically non-existent! The Summer sky here has to be seen to be appreciated. You may never see the Milky Way as you can here . . . especially if you live in an urban area.

Several of our regular campers frequently view the night skies and have reported seeing planets, galaxies, nebulae and star clusters on most nights. Views of the Moon are spectacular!

Even if you don't have a telescope, bring your binoculars (You'll want them to view wildlife and boats anyway!) Even the moons of Jupiter are visible in a good pair of binoculars.

Acadia National Park offers programs on the night sky on a regular basis. Information is available in the office.
