Nightscape Gallery

Sky Rangers and Astronomer Volunteers like to use the phrase: "Half The Park Is After Dark!"
It's so true, there's nothing like experiencing a beautiful landscape under a sky full of stars, the Milky Way and the Moon.

Below are gallery images submitted by park stargazers, rangers and volunteers.
