  1. Brilliant shots. I remember as a child being able to look up into the night sky and see the long paint brush of stars in the night. Light pollution has made that nearly impossible today.

    • The new moon is tomorrow which means no moon when the Milky Way is best seen. Go to a dark place free from city lights and look towards the southwest and you’ll see a thick band of stars. I was just outside now and could see the Milky Way right above me. Best after 11pm from March thru October!
