Monument Valley at Night
While Monument Valley’s gorgeous vistas are commonly associated with the sunrise and sunset, the veil of night and the stars produce stunning photographs as well. Our starlight tours are sure to satisfy avid stargazers and aspiring astronauts alike.
A New Side of Monument Valley
Approximately three hundred thousand people visit Monument Valley every year to sightsee the natural sandstone monuments in their most desirable lighting conditions. Not many people, however, know that just as the sunrise and sunset is prime time for capturing incredibly beautiful and vibrant vistas, so to is the night just as captivating. Throughout one calendar year there are several choice times in which to capture Monument Valley in the dark – these are nights with above average transparency from ground to space. For optimum starlight and moonlight conditions many factors have to be taken into account when visiting the valley from wind to humidity, cloud coverage and the degree of darkness. If you are interested in sightseeing Monument Valley under the night sky please give us a call or shoot us an email and we can advise to you the best time and place for the date you wish.
Starlight excursions are wonderful for the average stargazer and the avid astronomer. Monument Valley is an excellent place to witness the night sky and it’s splendorous star speckled canvas. Because there is so very little light (from near by homes, large cities and towns) the night sky here is like few places on earth.
