OMG that was awesome!! i could see the milky way all across the sky with whiteish-greyish color and about 1000 of stars!!!
i dont know if the bortle class was 3 or 2 but it was very clear and the sky ubove the head was filled with stars and the arm of the milky way!! that was awesome night. it was the second most dark place in the country which you can arrive with a car.
we will go to the darkest place one day too.
what i was disappointed about is that we couldn't stay long to see perseus, andromeda galaxy, orion and venus.
we left the area at 23:00 and orion only rise at 4:00. but next time we will be more prepared to even sleep in the area.
seeing this for the first time is the shock you get, i know it won't be the last time i see it but i guess seeing this for the first time ever is the biggest hit, and now all i want is to go back.
I was in this area:
