“Nightlife” has a different meaning in Glacier National Park. As a Dark Skies park, Glacier offers an easy way to drop in to a late night program. You’ll get to look through a powerful telescope and discover what’s happening in the night sky.
To learn about the night sky, go to the parking lot at Apgar Visitor Center in Apgar. A park astronomer will orient you to the stars, and you can gaze through the giant telescope at constellations, planets, and nebulae. If you bring binoculars, you’ll get more instruction on what you can see.
Drop in any time between 10 pm and midnight for this free program. But only go if the weather is good for stargazing. That means the sky needs to be relatively cloud-free. The program runs on all nights when the weather cooperates from July through September.
