Shaver Cemetery is a nice place in the day, but it’s a great spot at night. Close to Roanoke, but the terrain features block out much of the light pollution. It’s not completely dark sky, but it’s one of the best dark skies you’ll find so close to the city. Perfect for catching the Milky Way or a meteor shower!
