Arizona Sky Village, a purpose-built community for star-gazers in southern Arizona more than two hours drive southeast of Tucson.
Laid out on 450 acres beside the Chiricahua Mountains, the community has attracted residents from Britain, South Korea and Russia as well as the farthest corners of the United States in the past five years.
The graded access roads -- with names like Skyview Drive, South Milky Way and Starlight Trail -- link a low-density community of astronomy enthusiasts, each with their own four-acre (1.6-hectare) plot. [Reuters]
