In case this hasn't been mentioned here, Glacier National Park is an International Dark Sky Park paired with Waterton Lakes Park across the border in Alberta. GNP also has a new observatory on the east side at St. Mary's. Features a 20" telescope operated by the park.

Thanks for the post.  I wasn't aware they were "broadcasting" images on screens.

I was up there last fall (2018) when they were putting the finishing touches on the dome and installing the pier.
