Last Saturday Night

I love the summer Milky Way. This is how it looked the evening of July 18th during a star party for the Friends of Palomar Observatory.

Yes, Palomar still has dark skies, but the affects of sky glow are keenly felt by those performing research and those who want to enjoy the Milky Way on a summer evening. That is why working to fight light pollution is so vital.
