Week 45 – A Dark Night Sky
I’m so thirsty for a really dark night sky. I live in a tiny city where light pollution makes it absolutely impossible to view the band of the milky way with my own eyes. I have a strong wish to see it. Two years ago, I went to Lijiang hoping to get a chance to see the milky way at night, but it ended up realizing that the place where I had spent the night was not dark enough to see it. I still enjoyed the trip, even though the wish of stargazing was not fulfilled.
I’ve seen so many pictures of the milky way in the internet, and most of the pictures I’ve seen were taken in remoted area located so far away from where my home is located. I don’t know what I’m going to do to realize my wish.
Travel 10,192 kms (6333 miles) for viewing stars or just burry the wish silently in my heart. How do you think about that?
Here is one of the most interesting video I found on youtube that I would like to share with you. The milky way, clusters, shooting star and southern lights all can be seen at once in one single location: at Lake Tekapo!
