“There are tears which pierce through the earth and rise as stars in other skies. I wonder who has wept our stars?” -E.M. Cioran [Image: Galileo, The Pleiades - Sidereus Nuncius (Starry Messenger), 1610; quote via invisiblestories)
In every season, at every hour, Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is a stunning and surprising landscape. Remote enough for dark skies to allow the Milky Way to shine and featuring steam rising from hot springs tinted with colorful bacteria and reflecting the aurora borealis, a night in the park offers enough wonders for a lifetime.
