Constalations in Norway
According to the European Southern Observatory, weather conditions in the arctic and middle Norway are the most stable during winter which guarantees to see really bright parts of night sky constellations in near-constant darkness. The arctic circle is one of the top location hailed as the most commonly visited for watching Circumpolar Constellations. This constellation is considered to be seen all year round. It refers to their position relative to the earth remaining fairly unchanged through any season of the year. Famous constellations in the north are Draco, Cassiopeia, and Cepheus and Ursa Minor from which the last one is presumably ranked among the most famous group of stars seen in the North. Polaris is the brightest star in the group of Ursa Minor, famously known as the North Star being located right above the North Pole. Added to that for ages people have been using it for wayfinding. Just look up to spot these star groups above you.
Where to go
I have been searching for stargazing locations in Norway for 7 years. Trysil and the arctic circle offer spots overlooking beautiful constellations. However, the majority of stargazing guides forget to mention one hidden jam I discovered myself to please my camera and release my artistic flow. It is a beautiful valley of Vangedalen in the area of Romsdalseggen nestled 660 metres above sea level in Romsdal near Åndalsnes.
Due to low light pollution in Vangedalen Valley, photographers are able to gaze at blaring stars and the milky way at ease. The location is meticulously sandwiched between 2 wide spreading mountain ranges separating the place from the city light of Åndalsnes.
