National parks offer an amazing array of settings for watching the eclipse. The National Park Service mission to preserve special places for the enjoyment of everyone means that you can experience this historical event in a place that represents our heritage. National parks are also places to learn about our world. For example, monitoring air quality and starry night skies helps us understand how hazy skies affect parks and visitors. The National Park Service works with partners to protect our parks, ensuring they remain places that everyone can enjoy. Each park will help you make the most out of this unique celestial event.
