Arizona skies are renowned for their brilliant blues, spectacular sunsets and those stellar starry nights, but the best starry nights are found right here in Gila Bend. No kidding.
The skies know no limits in Gila Bend offering year-round views of the heavenly universe without that nasty interference of light from the Phoenix-metro area. Beginning just after 10 PM (around 9 during winter months), stargazers and astronomers can take full advantage of our dark skies. We're talking dark, so dark the only visible light comes from the stars above.
Any cloudless night in Gila Bend is a stargazer's delight, but we've gone ahead and listed some truly stunning shows that you don't want to miss!
