I haven’t been keeping up with #igwritersapril the last few days. I’ve been prepping for our short road trip to Texas! Me and my partner are going camping at @copperbreaksstatepark with the brother and his girl. Let me tell you about this park.
Copper Breaks is a designated Dark Sky Park. It’s an attempt to #savethenight by protecting the area from light pollution to preserve the beautiful night sky! 🌌 We visited this park about a year and a half ago and it was life changing.
I’ve always lived in a more rural area in Illinois, so I thought I had seen a lot of stars, but these skies are a.mazing. I had never seen so many stars in my life! My brother actually took the photo I’m using as a profile picture at Copper Breaks the first time we went.
Anyways, I’ll most likely be a little absent the next few days enjoying the beautiful weather and magnificent night sky. And just in time for the Lyrid meteor shower! ✨💫
I have my handy telescope and thirst for the universe in tow.
