I'm having an issue across my site where some images are not appearing properly; I'm sorry if you encounter broken or blurry images in this post. I'm working to get this fixed and appreciate your support.
I wrote a book! In partnership with Lonely Planet, my book was published in September 2019, and you can get signed copies here. If you’re curious about the story behind writing Dark Skies, click here.
Witnessing the sweep of the Milky Way, the remains of comets burning up in our atmosphere, or the shimmering aurora, we better understand the universe and our place in it. Lonely Planet’s Dark Skies, the first world’s guide to astrotourism, can help you experience all of this and more first-hand.
Meticulously researched by dark sky expert Valerie Stimac (me!), this comprehensive companion includes guides to 35 dark-sky sites and national parks, where to see the aurora, the next decade of total solar eclipses, and how to view rocket launches, plus the lowdown on commercial space flight, observatories, and meteor showers.
