Night hides the world, but reveals a universe.
- Persian proverb
If you've never really seen the Milky Way as clearly as shown here, then DO SO THIS SUMMER!!!
When: near new moons (i.e. "no" moon - 2 weeks following full moons) - this summer, near the end of each month.
Where: go east and away from lights. Remote areas east of the Cascades offer dark, clear skies (assuming proper weather conditions).
How: The best thing to do is to go to a "star party" (a group of star lovers, usually with telescopes that they are eager to share views from). Visit Rose City Astronomers web for details.
QUESTIONS: send me an email or join me at a star party.
If you want to go it alone, bring a heavy coat - 90 degree summer days are followed by quite cold nights (trust me).
