In the May/June issue of SkyNews Magazine, I wrote an open letter to Ontario Parks, petitioning them to get in the dark sky preserve game.
The park I suggested would be strongest to pursue their innaugural dark sky preserve designation with through the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) is Lake Superior Provincial Park.
In addition to writing about the park after myself and colleague Rick Stankiewicz traveled there over several summers, I also came to realize that the area was a Mecca for astrophotography.
From Sault Ste. Marie, ON artist Paula Trus and the images she’s made of people who’ve taken the drive up the highway an hour or so to enjoy the park, to Northern-Michigan-based Shawn Malone, who chronicles the skies of Lake Superior from the shore opposite the park, this is truly a dark-sky-wonderland.
