Yosemite's vast acreage and remote location protect some of the darkest night skies in the country. Astronomers, photographers and city dwellers flock to the park to take advantage of this unique opportunity to view planets, stars, and galaxies.

Great music! What is music? 
This remains one of my all time favourite YouTube clips. Even after all this time. Stunning.

People should really understand that in every kind of darkness there is a light - always!

JESUS is the MAKER of the stars, skies, etc :) <3 He loves you so much and really wants you to turn from Him and repent of your wickedness.

Alright , I think I've got the best Night Sky story ever Was camping Yosemite back when my first Son was 4 or 5 And as the night got darker . He started to become frightened . So I pointed out the light from the stars and sead . " See how close they are . Because we're so far up in the mountains ." And my Son SO , Starstruck sead to me ... " WOW ! Dad can we get one ? " As with every conviction of a five year old boy . Who hasn't seen the stars that close before . WELL ! His opptamisum could not be denied . So I flipped him up on my shoulders . And RAN up the near by hill to get one of those stars . Thank you Lance , for showing me the stars so close . I'm sorry we did not reach one that night . And now you're so far away .

This is so amazing How small we are In this Infinite universe.And This video to me never gets old, I come here often.Before seeing this video I never knew That there is also something called The Milky Way, and we can see it. This video made me curious about The Night sky, and today here I am exploring the night skies, The Milky Way, NGC , Messier catalog, and that feeling when i am alone under the sky just forgetting everything and submerging myself in the skies.
