Located in the Mora Valley, just two hours east of Santa Fe, in one of the darkest, most pristine night sky regions of the country, Fort Union once protected the trade route alongside Mountain and Cimarron Branches of the old Santa Fe Trail. The remnants of the second of three forts constructed in 1851, mostly made of fragile adobe, are protected and preserved by the National Park Service, and give us a glimpse of the tranquil grasslands, distant mountains and near perfect dark skies that soldiers stationed here once upon a time enjoyed.

The forts built here landed from 1851 to 1891 and during the Civil War was the only thing standing between Confederate Army which had taken control of Santa Fe and their potential invasion of Denver. Between March 26 to 28, 1862, Union and Confederate forces clashed at Battle of Glorieta Pass for the control of Fort Union and the Union forces won, effectively ending Confederate dream of sweeping across New Mexico. This battle is featured in Sergio Leone legendary western film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

US Army bugle call TAPS (a.k.a. Butterfield’s Lullaby, arranged by Union Army Brigadier General Daniel Butterfield) featured at the opening of the video was originally accompanied by melancholic ode-to-the-night-sky lyrics by Horace Lorenzo Trim

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Fading light, dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

Thanks and praise, for our days,
‘Neath the sun, ‘neath the stars, neath the sky;
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

Sun has set, shadows come,
Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds
Always true to the promise that they made.

While the light fades from sight,
And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.

“On a remote island hours away from Key West lies the largest masonry structure in the Americas: Fort Jefferson. Built with 16 million bricks, but never finished, the fort served as a prison during Civil War. In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, upon visiting the island, named it a National Monument, and in 1992 it became part of Dry Tortugas National Park.”

Melancholy Gorge Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film in West Virginia Directed by Harun Mehmedinovic

“New River Gorge, located in gorgeous rural West Virginia, is the site of the oldest river system in the world.

At the heart of the New River Gorge is world’s third longest single span arch bridge, as well as the third tallest bridge on the United States at 876 feet above river level. Every year, around mid-October, this moody stretch of the river becomes the site of one of the most impressive displays of Fall foliage colors, and that transition of seasons has become one of the biggest tourist draws on the East coast.

This video, which premiered on BBC Earth, was filmed as part of SKYGLOWPROJECT.COM, an ongoing crowdfunded quest to explore the effects and dangers of urban light pollution in contrast with some of the most incredible Dark Sky Preserves in North America.”
