One of the greatest things about living in the Scottsdale area is the small amount of light noise found in the desert. Light noise is what happens in other cities that pour the ambient light of streetlamps, signs and house lighting into the air making it difficult to see the heavenly constellations. Also known as light pollution, light noise is at one of the lowest gradients in the United States in parts of the Sonoran Desert. This gives avid sky watchers a great opportunity to marvel at the heavens with the naked eye or telescope.
If you are looking for some great sky watching and you want to explore the lights of galaxies and constellations, one great local place to go is the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale which boasts two enormous telescopes. The Four Seasons Resorts has many of luxurious amenities and fine service offering some of the best reasons to go sky watch in the comfort of a high end resort. They even give you a star chart with the turn down service! You can also head to the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain to enjoy and learn from one of their astronomy programs. If you have a curiosity about our universe, you can simply walk outside most places in and around Scottsdale, Arizona and just look up.
