There is one activity we can do in Wyoming that is completely free that many take for granted. Stargazing. There's a Jackson, Wyoming man that's trying to change that.

I stumbled across the story of Dr. Samuel Singer on YouTube. He's the subject of a video about his organization, Wyoming Stargazing. His YouTube channel tells a little bit about his story:

Wyoming Stargazing was founded by Jackson Hole resident, Dr. Samuel Singer. Samuel received his PhD in Science Education from the University of Wyoming in Laramie. He founded the organization as a way to further his passion for helping others “explore the extraordinary in the ordinary.”

His organization helps organize viewings around Wyoming and is very highly rated on TripAdvisor.

Samuel explains that stargazing is better in Wyoming with science. He shared details of the fact that we are at a high elevation with dryer air makes the night sky even more spectacular since there's less atmosphere to deal with. Wyoming also has more places that don't have a lot of city light which helps the dark sky observations.

It appears that the official website for Wyoming Stargazing was down when I checked, but you can keep up with the latest from the group on their Facebook page.
