Christmas is coming! And for your kids, nothing is more exciting that the thought of Santa. Just like the song says “tiny tots with their eyes all aglow, will find it hard to sleep tonight.” May your kid is trying to listen for reindeer hooves on the roof, sneak downstairs to get a glimpse of the big man coming down the chimney, or catch a glimpse of Santa’s sleigh in the sky. If the latter is on your kid’s bucket list, it depends on the visibility of where you live as to the chance you’ll spot Santa in the sky.
99% of Americans, live under sky glow, which is one of the most prominent forms of light pollution. Which can make it harder to see that elusive sleigh and reindeer. Our friends at Decluttr identified which cities have lower levels of light and noise pollution based on their Report: The State of Sleep Technology in U.S. and, ultimately, determined which U.S. cities have a better chance of spotting Santa and his reindeer flying overhead. Unfortunately, there isn’t a great spot to see Santa in the sky in North Carolina. You’re looking at a road trip up to Virginia Beach for the closest city on the list.
But you never know what could happen on Christmas Eve if you just believe! That’s part of the magic of the season.
