Big open dark indigo skies filled with sparkling stars are what you see when you look into the sky from Grenfell. Grenfell provides perfect dark skies suitable for spectacular night viewing. A new moon is the best time to watch stars and to see the spectacular milky way.
Spot the man on the moon or watch the comets shoot by.
The image above is of the Weddin Mountains, looking back towards Grenfell. You can see the towns glow coming up from behind the mountains.
