    It's beautiful! My dream is to go out to the desert sometime and see the Milky Way with my own eyes.

    A few years ago, I attended a conference in Hawaii. While there, I took a tour of the Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea. I had never imagined there were so many stars to be seen with the naked eye. That experience got me interested in Astronomy.

    Here is another photo taken this past weekend. You can see the Andromeda Galaxy if you look just above the telescope in the picture.

    Truly awesome pics. Maybe we should have our next Sisterhood convention in New Mexico or Hawaii.

    I would certainly show up for that one! The closest dark sky to me is in Moonbears neck of the woods. Spruce Knob, WV.

    Cool! I was just recently looking up info on Seneca Rocks, which is really close to there, as a possible weekend trip idea for the summer. That information now makes that an even more appealing idea. :cool:
