GOBLIN VALLEY STATE PARK – Goblin Valley State Park is now officially a “Dark Sky Park.”

After a two-year application process, it got the designation from the International Dark Sky Association.

The association is dedicated to the protection of night skies.

This means Goblin Valley has minimal light pollution, creating one of the clearest and darkest night skies in the world.
