The Milky Way is clearly visible above Big Bend National Park in Texas.
Looking up into the night and seeing a sky full of twinkling stars is something we all take for granted – in rural locations, at least. The problem is that nowadays, streetlights, neon signs and the brightly lit buildings of towns and cities have made seeing much more than a handful of stars a luxury. That’s where Dark Sky Parks like Texas’ Big Bend National Park come in.
