The Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument in Arizona, jointly managed by the BLM’s National Conservation Lands and National Park Service, is a vast remote landscape where the only nighttime light comes from the stars. The International Dark Sky Association (IDA) recognized the unspoiled quality of its pristine and breathtaking night skies with an official IDA designation as “Parashant International Night Sky Province,” joining an elite group of other international Night Sky Places around the globe.
Enjoy the starry skies over the Grand Canyon Parashant along with other BLM lands that, while not official IDA sites, offer stunning views of the Milky Way. #SeeBLM #findyourpark
