Welcome to our corner of the universe created and designed for anyone who marvels at the sight of bright stars, planets, and deep space objects speckled across an inky black night sky!  OneDarkSky is a site for night sky enthusiasts and is dedicated to amateur astronomy, public outreach, and the enjoyment and preservation of our dark night skies.

No matter who we are or where we live, and regardless of our social or economic status, we all have one thing in common: our night sky.  We all see the same sky at night; just some of us see it at different angles!  No one needs a big, fancy telescope or lots of expensive, complicated equipment to marvel at the jewels of the night.  We only need to open our eyes and look up.

Here at OneDarkSky, we strive to enlighten everyone about the wonders the night sky holds for each of us.  We'll tell you what's up there, where and how to find it, what makes it so special, and (most importantly) how to preserve and protect our beautiful nightscapes for future generations.

Here are some of the things you can see, learn and do at OneDarkSky:

  • Learn about the Night Sky and what it has to offer this time of year.
  • Read articles written exclusively for ODS about the night sky and amateur astronomy.
  • Engage in discussions with other night sky enthusiasts in our ODS forums.
  • Learn what you can do to preserve and promote our night sky.

Feel free to roam around and explore our site.  There's so much more to see and do, and the content will change to keep it nice and crispy fresh.  Thank you for visiting and sharing our enthusiasm for the night sky.  Email us at SkyTalk@OneDarkSky.com if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, or if you just want to talk about the night sky we share.
