Now, you may think you have seen some stars in your life, especially if you live in Maine. There are very few areas where light pollution completely ruins the night sky. However, your backyard viewing is nothing compared to what you will witness in the vast darkness of Katahdin Woods & Waters National Monument.

Officially established in 2016, the national monument is 87,000+ acres of pure Northern Maine. There's literally nothing but wilderness, wildlife, and unspoiled sky. It's like going back in time to an era that lacked modern technology.

In fact, the sky is so dark that Outside Magazine listed Katahdin Woods & Waters as one of the best places to enjoy stargazing. The remote Northern Maine national monument joined a list of 10 incredible locations across the country which Outside Magazine deemed as can't-miss regions to enjoy popular celestial bodies.

Because of this, it's no surprise that Katahdin Woods & Waters is home to an amazing stargazing opportunity.

What an incredible event this is going to be. It takes everything that is great about Maine and combines it with the universe's mind-blowing views.

This is a can't-miss event for any outdoorsperson or fan of stargazing. It's a way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the plugged-in world, at least for a night.

Happy stargazing to all.
