Tag Archives: dark sky

There’s nothing like the feeling of being out looking up at the stars, especially in a dark sky place. The first photo is from the campground but for the rest I drove out away from most people. The yellow glow is most likely the bright lights of Las Vegas.

It’s hard to find places with genuinely dark skies. I go out at night and try to point my camera away from all street lights and porch lights and security lights that dot our valley and hillsides.

Looking south, the glow from Twisp


I don’t know where the yellow glow behind Patterson Mountain comes from – Bellingham?

Is that a distant galaxy to the right of the tree?


Tiny Winthrop makes lots of light, perhaps a bit of Aurora too.
