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.

Last night I spent two hours at Washington Pass with three other people practicing night photography. It’s still a work in progress for me with much to learn. It was a lovely night and hazy clouds came and went sometimes obscuring many of the stars or the Milky Way. We did get a little bit of the northern lights though.

Do you like dark night skies full of stars? Support efforts to preserve them like this one happening in our valley.
