I live an hour west of London England rural (just about) and i can see the milky way with varying clarity
any non cloudy night and when the sky is just right i can just about make out the fuzzy patch of the Andromeda galaxy
drive a few miles south to Salisbury plain (nr Stonehenge) and its much better. and when im down in rural france
its breathtaking what can be seen with mk1 eyeball but the finest example of heavenly vista i have ever beheld
was from the top deck of a cruise ship midway between port everglades and Nassau it was truly magical the detail and
clarity of the sheer number of stars and the glow of the galaxy's gas clouds with the added bonus of pink and blue lightning from distant storms around the horizon will stay with be for the rest of my life .
i would imagine the vast areas of rural dessert and wilderness in the states the sky's can only be better for viewing
i have only experienced night time in the states around Orlando and Miami so i get it for those who never travel
far beyond the city limits it must be difficult to imagine whats above i pity them!
