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
On a side note...
