The sky is fabulous out here in my neck of the boondocks. I look up every chance I get.

They have no clue what they are missing!

kinda had a little accident while making it and poof....
anyhow. no not poetic. unless you live in the country you get hardly any stars .and living there will change with agenda 21.but most of the planet is in cities now. and that inspirational night sky the planet enjoyed for thousands of years has been hidden . why else would we wasted so much energy lighting up the empty streets at night ?




The world is undergoing the largest wave of urban growth in history. In 2008, for the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population will be living in towns and cities. By 2030 this number will swell to almost 5 billion, with urban growth concentrated in Africa and Asia. While mega-cities have captured much public attention, most of the new growth will occur in smaller towns and cities, which have fewer resources to respond to the magnitude of the change.

i remember once our band was touring, and we parked the van in a country lane somewhere in the countryside, somewhere down in southwest UK. when i woke up at about 5am and got out for a smoke, i was utterly blown away by the vast starry sky, conditioned as i was to the heavily light polluted city nights. the depth and detail of the stars was stupendous. truly a revelation, and one that made me realise how much us city-dwellers miss of the night sky.

Most of us have had a post go awry while trying to fix it for the ATS critical poulation and understand. Others... maybe not as much.
Go figure. I have hit the blasted "enter" button half through on more than a few occasions and was left trying to fix it while a few moaned.
It's ok. Take your time and most of us will check back.

Yeah I know what you mean. Originally from NY, I used to love when I came up here for the summer. Sit on the beach, listening to the ocean, watching for shooting stars. Always like the sky, myself. Clouds, stars, both cool.

Word!

New Mexico, my home state.

During the monsoons, the thunderstorms put 4th of July fireworks to shame.

And the sunsets look like no place else on earth. The sky turns purple, pink, orange, blue and white all at the same time.

The night sky outside the city of Albuquerque, is just incredible.

I miss my home.

Been in Arizona for the past 7 months.

This place sucks ass.

The best place I have ever seen the awesome display of our galaxy and universe was one night in south-east Colorado near the panhandle of Oklahoma. I had been driving for 4 hours and needed to pee. It was 2am on a two lane road, in the middle of nowhere, with no cars for miles, so I thought I would just pull over and water the grass a little.
What I saw in the sky was truly amazing! Hundreds of miles away from any cities, combined with an extremely arid climate and no moon gave me the single best view of the sky I have ever seen! I almost forgot to zip-up as I stood in total amazement of the depth and beauty of what I saw. I stood out there for at least 15 minutes before I decided I should wake my wife. She was not as excited about it as I was, but after she peed on the side of the road she felt better and we shared a special moment together!

Two things I learned from that experience twenty years ago is that the universe is totally awesome, and I should have let the b*tch sleep and just walked away. She didn't deserve the beauty that she saw that night. I hope she never sees another star again, unless it's the business end of a supernova!

On a side note...

You could also visit India.
Apparently they don't have many lights on right now.

I am born and bred in the country, My hubby is from a big city, when he first moved here he was amazed about how nice the people were, Saying hello to him even suprised him, The night sky he loves, Many a night i have got him out laying on the trampoline with me looking up at the star's...

The only problem is his nick name for me is carrot cruncher (in jest)


Or yellow belly......


Cheeky sod
