The Montana sky
I have often heard visitors say, there is nothing like the Montana sky. They say the sky in Montana is different than in other places. I suppose that is why the state is fondly referred to as “Big Sky Country.” You can see for miles in all directions, with the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains or the open plains.
The other incredible thing that we take for granted living in Montana is the beautiful stars you see on clear nights, especially in the summertime. There is nothing more memorable than sitting on your porch at night, and seeing the entire sky lit up with tiny stars as far as you can see. This is especially true when you get away from the more populated areas (such as Billings, Bozeman, and Missoula), and truly are able to get an open view of the sky without the lights.
Be sure to take a moment while you are in this beautiful state to look at the sky as often as you can! I often have to remind myself to stop and enjoy its clear beauty.
Warmest wishes from Big Sky Country,
