Hi Carol,

Thanks for reaching out to us! November is a great time of year to visit Death Valley National Park. The International Dark-Sky Association certifies Death Valley National Park as a gold-tier International Dark Sky Park, where the full array of visible sky phenomena can be viewed—e.g. aurora, airglow, Milky Way, zodiacal light, and faint meteors.

In the winter and spring seasons, park rangers offer night sky programs and hold stargazing events with astronomy organizations. Using high-powered telescopes, visitors can explore the mysteries of Death Valley's dark, night skies.

For more information on tours and viewing the night sky at Death Valley National Park, please visit http://www.nps.gov/deva/naturescience/lightscape.htm

We hope this information is helpful and that you will continue to use our ParkFinder app and website to find more great parks to explore!

 

Best,

Jasmine
