Best time for stargazing at Newport

It's the perfect time of the year to look at the stars at Newport State Park in Ellison Bay. Michelle Hefty, Manager of Newport State Park, says the skies are clear and sharp because of the lack of humidity. Also, you don't have to stay out as late since the sun goes down so early. Hefty says the clear nights have just been spectacular. 



Newport State Park is considered by the International Dark-Sky Association as an International Dark Sky Park, one of only 48 parks in the world to earn that distinction according to their website.
