Stargazing in White Mountains

Looking for real night life? Arizona is home to a number of prestigious observatories – including The Lowell, Kitt Peak and Mount Graham observatories – and enjoys a worldwide reputation for stellar stargazing. But why travel halfway across the state to enjoy a spectacular show when you can step right outside in Greer AZ for the show of a lifetime?

Greer is widely regarded as one of the darkest skies in North America.  15 miles from the nearest town at an altitude of 8,500 feet, the heavens literally come alive at night with twinkling splendor, giving even the casual observer a clear view of the Milky Way with their naked eye on any given night.

Have you ever seen satellites glide through the heavens with the naked eye?   YOU CAN IN GREER!  

So vast is the star field from Greer, that you may actually have difficulty even spotting major constellations due to the density of heavenly bodies.  The fascination with the heavens, which has long inspired astronomers and poets alike with a powerful sense of both magic and wonder, is at its most intoxicating right here in Greer.

Cast your eyes to the heavens with a loved one and… GET YOUR GREER ON!™
