Dave Morrow is one of the top night sky photographers out there today. Check out his links below and you won’t be disappointed I promise. This photo shot near Mt. Rainier, Washington during a night sky photography workshop is a beautiful representation of our night sky, complete with meteor streak. I love the vertical looming plane of the Milky Way galaxy stretching into the sky as spaceship Earth rolls along it. Personally, no matter how much time passes, when I travel from my glowing Boston horizon up into the darkness of the NH White Mountains I have to stop and really admire my time with the night sky. So many stars that I cannot see from home appear that it’s difficult to spot some of the major constellations. It’s all the more reason to preserve our night sky if at all possible because it would be a true shame for future generations to miss out on sights like this.

Mt Rainier rises 14,410 ft. above sea level and is an active stratovolcano and one that is very much on the disaster preparedness folk’s minds, especially those near Seattle as its only 54 miles southeast from downtown. It is the most glaciated mountain in the US and that is a major concern (Lahar potential) as well as tourist attraction to the area. Until then, this area boasts some of the most spectacular views that nature has to offer (day & night) and as an avid hiker myself it’s very high on my “to do” list.
