The Night Sky
I’m one of the one-fifth of the world’s population that can’t see the Milky Way at night. Yes, I live in a fairly rural/suburban area of Western New York. It’s an hour and a half or two hour drive to get to the nearest cities (Rochester, Syracuse, etc). But there’s no Milky Way unless I drive a half hour out into the country.
I only see the bright stars. There are more than I can count — it’s not like I live in a city and can only see two stars — but I only see the points of light, no stunning celestial clouds. I need to fix this.
