More stars than Hollywood
Known for its dark skies, Tupper Lake has become a well-known and much-admired stargazing destination. In fact, it's some of the best night sky viewing in the northeast! Thanks to a lack of light pollution, the area's skies stay dark, letting the wonders of the night sky truly shine. The community here loves celebrating astronomy and has focused on keeping light pollution to an absolute minimum. So whether you're new to stargazing, or you're a dedicated observer, you'll love the magic of Tupper's skies.
Adirondack Sky Center & Observatory
The dark skies and community involvement made Tupper Lake the ideal home for the ever-growing Adirondack Sky Center & Observatory, which offers free public programming, including stargazing parties, lectures, and special events. The Sky Center operates a roll-off roof observatory near Little Wolf Beach. Several telescopes on site and regular Friday night stargazing sessions (weather permitting) led by knowledgeable volunteers make for great opportunities to learn, see, and explore!
