Milky Way from Death Valley
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Science
If there were no light pollution, you would be able to see this from your own backyard...
It's astonishing how much light pollution changes the evening sky.
Thanks for stashing this image.
If you get the chance, and you are an experienced enough hiker, going to the top of telescope peak (highest point in Death Valley) is amazing but the climb is quite dangerous toward the top especially at night.
