Stargazing Champaign

Late winter and early spring are often considered to be the best times for stargazing. Not only are the nights longer, but you're more likely to have clear skies. If you've ever noticed bright stars on a cold winter night, it's because cold air holds less moisture than warm air, which leads to fewer clouds and less haze.

Stargazing is a fun family activity and a great learning experience. You can head out and try to spot constellations, or if you're lucky, you might even be able to catch a glimpse of the Milky Way. We find the whole experience to be incredibly peaceful, especially in areas around Champaign with low light pollution. Here are some of our favorite options to stargaze around Champaign.
