Best Spots For Night Photos

Watch The Stars, Even in New Jersey

Searching for the Milky Way? Explore these dark areas and perfect spots around New Jersey for your night photography. New Jersey is one of the most light-polluted areas in the country, but we do have a long shoreline that allows us to view the Milky Way. Also, with several rural areas, we have some great dark areas for night photography. These spots will allow you to capture the stars. We marked areas that are generally dark to allow for stargazing and also, specific locations for Milky Way & night scenes.
