Abstract or Description
Using a GIS and information about variables that influence night sky visibility, I created a suitability model for stargazing in Maine. Additionally, using information about terrain and land cover, I created least cost paths from Waterville to three designated viewing areas. The model corroborates the overall high quality of stargazing throughout Maine.
