Sedona has been declared a dark-sky community by the International Dark-Sky Association. This is quite an honor as there are only eight such communities in the world, with six of them being in the United States. Flagstaff, our neighbor to the north, is one of the other communities with this designation.
It came about as a result of the tireless efforts of numerous local governmental entities, business and environmental groups, and Keep Sedona Beautiful, which submitted the comprehensive application. Sedona is a beautiful place to live, and this is just one of the things that will help keep it that way.
