Anyone who loves exploring the night sky should head over to Dark Site Finder, a website designed to help visitors find spots ideal for stargazing. Created by photographer Kevin Palmer, visitors to the site can check out the level of light pollution in any region of the United States by entering an address into the site's map. As the site notes, "For many people getting to a 100% dark sky is not possible without spending an entire day driving. But if you look for a site where the sky is only dark in the direction you want to observe, it becomes easier." To further aid those looking to explore the night sky, the site provides tips for checking out the Milky Way or Aurora Borealis. Dark Site Finder also features a regularly updated stargazing weather forecast from Accuweather. The Photography section is also not to be missed, featuring Palmer's gorgeous photographs and videos of meteors, aurora borealis, and comets.
