You have to get up to a higher altitude and away from city lights. I'm sure there's some observatory's in California and Arizona you could go to, or camping in California mountain parks.While in various parts of AZ, I could NEVER SEE THE BLEEPING NIGHT SKY!!! :upset: Stupid rain clouds at night! (but it did help their drought conditions, sorry) I want to see stars, dangit! And not the limited view that CA gets due to massive light pollution, either.
Radio astronomy huh? Low energy, long wave lengths and a highly polluted spectrum. :bored: :zzz: :zzz:
You can sure see the stars above 6,000 ft., dry air and virtually no air or light pollution, I imagine Montana is the same without the elevation?Radio astronomy huh? Low energy, long wave lengths and a highly polluted spectrum. :bored: :zzz: :zzz:
This likely isn't relevant to most people here, but we've had some aurora action around here. I haven't seen it myself, but some friends have. The really odd thing is this being near the solar minimum there hasn't been a flare or corneal mass ejection or other sign to indicating an impending aurora.
You'd imagine wrong. Western Montana (where I live) is quite high in elevation. Most of the major cities are at 3,000 ft and in all but one, you can reach 6,000 ft pretty quickly. My town is at 5,100 and my house is just below 5,600. Light pollution is a problem in the cities. Many have an urban sprawl thing going on and lights are everywhere. In town the city is finally starting to work on the problem.You can sure see the stars above 6,000 ft., dry air and virtually no air or light pollution, I imagine Montana is the same without the elevation?
