Sea Ranch @ Night

The Sea Ranch at night is a very different Sea Ranch. It’s dark, it’s quiet and it’s the ideal place to stargaze. The Sea Ranch, in my opinion, is one of the best places for stargazing. Why? There are no streetlights or city lights to interfere with viewing which makes for optimum conditions.

Stargazing is an activity that one can participate in on any clear night. On some evenings you can even observe the Milky Way with the naked eye. And, if you look long enough you may even see a shooting star. If you really want to know what your looking at download one of the many stargazing apps and you’ll get instant results that reveal what stars and constellations are in the night skies. A great time to be in Sea Ranch is when the Perseid meteor showers are in the forecast. It’s your front row seat under stars and you’ll probably lose count after about an hour.

Armchair stargazing is no substitute for the real thing but watching this slideshow at The Sea Ranch Life on YouTube may be a close second.

P.S. – If you’d like to stargaze from the comfort of your own bed there is a walk-in-cabin for sale with an oversized skylight in the sleeping loft for sale at 276 Redwood Rise. Take a virtual tour at
