Stargaze at Astronomy Field

Jamestown, Tennessee


Added by Jared Beeler

An amazing place to stargaze and do astrophotography.

This Dark Sky Park is a part of the Pickett State Park. It was established in 2015. It is one of the only IDA registered dark sky parks in the east. I have been all over the United States stargazing and this is still one of the best spots I have been to. The astronomy field offers a free and easily accessible place to stargaze and do astro photography. Astronomy field is right off of the road and has a large gravel parking lot. There is a small walk up to the field. Make sure to bring flashlight with a redlight or a redlight filter. The redlight is used so that you can see without hurting your nightvision. Remember to be curtious to the other people viewing there and do not use your light unless it is absolutely necessary. It is a good idea to bring a blanket or chair to sit on.
