STAR GAZING

Payson, Arizona's night sky is a spectacular scene, sprinkled with an abundance of glittering stars, planets, and nebulae. Everyone says "WOW!" when they look through the telescope or lay out under the stars.  

 

Payson is at an elevation of just over 5,000 feet and residents like to brag that the town is situated in one of only three, pure air ozone belts in the world.  This amounts to one of the best places on the planet for star gazing.  Many of the constellations like Andromeda, Scorpius, the Big Dipper as well as many of the planets - Mars, Saturn, Venus, and others await your gaze!

 

Payson has a dark sky ordinance and unlike larger cities where lights make it difficult to see the stars, Payson doesn't have that problem.
