    I live in the city and don't see much beyond the major stars at night. When I am away from the street lights and see the universe - frankly it kinda freaks me out. Not quite sure why, but it does.

    It is amazing when you go from purple sky's at night, to clear sky's with all these bits of light, rather then the plane warning lights on towers.

    Well, now that we are past the Solstice, I am up to about an hour of useful "dark" a night, well after midnight.

    Here's the Milky Way from the last few days, from random spots I was lurking at 2am

    Love them both, Bae! The top one forced my eye to travel and explore which is fun in an image. The trees stabilize and frame so beautifully.
