Big Bend National Park in southwest Texas has some of the most well-preserved dark skies in the country. I chat with Jason Gablaski, the lead dark sky ranger at the park, about the best time of year for stargazing events, cultural astronomy of the indigenous people of the region, and things you can do during the day when you visit.
