off to the mountains
having just got back from watching superbike racing, we're off to the mountains of west virginia with our astronomy club for the annual star party. 170 people and telescopes of all sizes; a few solar scopes to look at the sun during the day, too.
keeping our fingers crossed for some clear, dark skies. it's so dark up there, you can see the dust lanes in the milky way before it gets truly dark...try that in d.c.
