Night Sky Preserve
Michael Harris got it right when he compared Jasper’s night skies to Van Gogh’s Starry Nights.
IJune Moon over Patricia Lake took this photo in late June. It was almost midnight yet still bright out. You sure do get your money’s worth when you vacation in Jasper. Every day is like almost 2 days anywhere else with all the daylight this beautiful Northern Rockies park enjoys.
In the summer, you have to be pretty patient, waiting for the dark skies to arrive. But, when they do, the show is amazing.
If you’re lucky enough to own an iPad, be sure to install GoSkyWatch Planetarium for iPad — the astronomy star guide. It’s an incredible teaching tool for zooming in on & identifying constellations.
