Starry Night

Being from the densely populated area of Langley, even on the clearest of nights it’s hard to see the stars. Light pours into the sky from the near by cities and homes, and the stars become a subtle glow rather than bright pinholes in the sky.

Determined to see some real stars, much like on my recent camping trip this summer, I ventured up the Sea to Sky highway (well past midnight, might I add) to see what I could find.

Not only was I greeted by the night with a wonderfully clear, sparkly view of the Milky Way, but also a surprise appearance by the Northern Lights. They say that sometimes the stars align, and on Friday night they sure did!
