Did you know that, in 2011, the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) officially designated Jasper National Park a Dark Sky Preserve?
What’s even more amazing is that Jasper National Park’s 11,000 km2 is now the largest dark sky preserve in the world.
Park visitors are astounded when they experience the brightly lit night skies. But it isn’t being lit by artificial street lights. Camping areas glow with the bright lights of the stars.
I wonder if that’s why so many people come to Jasper for their wedding ceremonies. Who can resist that kind of ambience?
