Why We Love It

I recently had the phenomenal opportunity to staff Atlas Obscura's Death Valley astronomy and night photography trip alongside Tyler Nordgren, an incredibly talented astronomer and artist. Tyler has not only spent years working with the National Park Service on public science and astronomy education—including writing a book on the subject—but he's also created a dazzling set of vintage-style “travel posters” that capture the night skies in America's greatest parks. His posters also feature the Milky Way, 2017 solar eclipse, and planetary system. I've got one on our office wall.
