Welcome to California Dark Skies!

This site provides a list of observing locations in Southern California.

It was compiled for members and friends of the Santa Monica Amateur Astronomy Club and I hope it will prove helpful to anyone living in the Los Angeles area who wants to find a place where they can see stars at night.

Also, since this is a work in progress, I welcome any suggestions for additional observing locations or improving the site. I also invite those who are familiar with any of these locations to share their comments.
