Stargazing Spots Around The World

Many may find it quite surprising that some of the most stunning views on earth are not actually of the earth, but of the starry skies that lie above us.

While most of us live in areas that prevent us from being able to witness these in their full glory, astro-tourism is quickly becoming the latest fad for those wishing to behold something new.

So the Team here at Lyco thought we would explore the world of stargazing and find the best spots for any budding astronomers, whether you are going just to take a quick look or camping out with your telescope there is a place for everyone.

To see the full list of these stunning spots simply click here or on our infographic below.
