Celestial Prairies Skies
“Stars and planets fill our night sky, yet many of us never take the time to observe them. Simply looking at the vast expanse of the universe can open up your perception of reality and calm your soul.”
A morning sunrise is always thought as the best way to start out our days, but an evening sunset allows us the quiet contemplation of our hectic lives.
There is something enchanting about a changing evening sky. Too often, we don’t take the time to watch as vibrant luminous colours appear with a setting sun. Shades of magenta, gold, purples and pink, blending with the day’s blue hues, sometimes intermingled with puffs of white. Almost as if Mother Nature was painting just for you.
It’s a time of reflection and appreciation that in today’s hectic world is too often taken for granted or missed entirely. Watching a sunset is not reserved for vacations once a year. Summer time signals long days with sultry evenings. Full of promises of a new day and the mysteries of the evening that lies ahead.
There are 36 dark sky preserves in the world and Canada leads with 19 of them. Jasper is known as the second largest astronomy park on Earth. Why? Because there’s no obstructions.
Out in the Alberta prairies, there are absolutely no obstructions. Just pure prairie summer majestic nights.
Over the past few years, passengers aboard the Aspen Crossing Railway, Twilight Tour, have been able to experience a truly stellar evening with a chance to take that much needed deep breath and just relax while marvelling at the never-ending scenery that is in fact, quite rare.
