Feeling so incredibly blessed after a night spent celebrating love ❤️ •••
Everything was perfect- the weather, the venue, the couple, the company and this man. •••
How in the world did I get so lucky?! Friendships that can withstand distance. Beautiful landscapes that are in our backyard. Couples that set an example of what love is. A man that supports and loves me unconditionally. I LOVE this life ❤️
Celebrating Møn and Nyord getting gold tier Dark Sky Park and Dark Sky Community certificates! I don't know if any other places have a double certificate now, but at the time of the nomination, we were the only ones to hold both. So come to Møn and Nyord and camp under the stars! Hit me up if you do and I'll show the best spots ;) Sorry for the shifty mobile-shot, but I'm going drinking afterwards and do not want to wreck my camera. #darkskypark#darksky#Møn#Nyord#savagerose
Over on our blog, Ada Blair shares some new thoughts on dark sky culture and introduces a new conference on the topic, which she'll be speaking at later this month. Head over to our site and check it out!

I met up with @pthilqvist, after finding out we live about 800 meters from each other, through a Facebook-group we're both in. It was just after the Perseids had peaked, and while we did get to see a few meteors, I didn't get any with the camera. We had a nice chat and will definitely meet up again. He's the happy owner of a tracker, which lets to you track a certain point in the sky, so you can get much clearer and more detailed photos, which he has promised I can try 👏 So fingers crossed for clear skies soon! 🤞
Check out Palle's page, he has some great stuff there!
Quick camping trip. The landscape is crazy beautiful but the sky at night beats anything I've ever seen. Just like that old 10,000 Maniacs line, the stars were so many there, they seem to overlap. #darkskypark#utah

Incredible star gazing last night at the top of Logan Pass, celebrating 101 years of the National Park Service.
I am obsessed with all-things-space, which is a simple way of saying:
I am absolutely obsessed with the infinite, the endless, the vast, and the unquantifiable purpose we hold simply by being *among* such wonderful and magnificent celestial bodies.
Tonight, I got to go to one the "dark sky" parks in rural Pennsylvania - Cherry Springs National Park. I was immediately captivated by how perfectly beautiful the stars seemed to just paint across the sky.
I saw Saturn, up close, through a telescope. So close in fact, I could make out the exact rings that encircle it. Saturn is super super important to me.
I saw Hercules' star cluster.
I saw Jupiter.
I saw the craters of Moon.
Then. Out of nowhere. A meteor skipped across Earths atmosphere, right into our field of view. The biggest, brightest, longest tail just lit up the sky so bright that everyone went speechless. We couldn't believe our eyes; we thought it was fake. 💫 🙈
I had instant tears in my eyes.
These moments are so rarely seen, let alone experienced in the company of others. It was purely magic.
I will never forget it. ✨💜
