Crystal clear night skies are one of the many reasons to visit #Maine’s Acadia #NationalPark. Photographer Evan Kokoska (@evankokoska) planned a last-minute trip to #Acadia to capture the night sky. After some scouting and gorging on lobster, he spent the night shooting at Bubble Pond. With clear skies and calm winds, he was able to catch the Galactic Center of the #MilkyWay. An added bonus: Mars (to the right) and Saturn (a little below and to the left of Mars). Of the park, he says, “Acadia is powerful -- the granite and shorelines are amazing and humbling.” Photo courtesy of Evan Kokoska (@evankokoska). #findyourpark #usinterior

When a good solar wind blows, the #NorthernLights appear in a dazzling display. Purple and green bursts of light brighten the sky above #Denali National Park and Preserve (@denalinps) in #Alaska, creating candles out of the treetops. Be sure to add this starry sight to your travel bucket lists. Photo by Daniel A. Leifheit, #NationalPark Service. #findyourpark #usinterior

There are circumstances where staying up all night are acceptable (and also highly encouraged). One is waiting until 3 am for the full moon to set so the dark skies and bright stars that #Utah’s Arches #NationalPark is known for had come out to show off. Photographer Hunter Day (@hunter_day_photo) spent all night out taking pictures, ending up at The Windows trail for the rise of the #MilkyWay cresting right over the North Window.

Photographer Wookie Kim shot this dreamy picture on his iPhone during a sunrise walk along the Ohio & Erie Canal at #CuyahogaValley #NationalPark in #Ohio. Last fall, Wookie went on an epic 45-day trail running road trip, driving to more than 30 national parks -- from @cuyahogavalleynps to the Grand Canyon -- and running a trail each day as part of #wookierunsamerica. Wookie says: “In all, I ran almost 500 miles of trails, gained 70,000-plus vertical feet, hit 33 states and had one unforgettable experience. It was the trip of a lifetime.” Photo courtesy of Wookie Kim (@wookiekim). #usinterior #findyourpark
