National Geographic Travel

Photo by @jimrichardsonng The Saguaro cactus near Peridot, Arizona were all pointing in the right direction, straight up at the Milky Way. Phoenix, nearly 120 miles away, was but a faint glow on the horizon. International Dark Sky Week has me remembering the incredible opportunity I had to explore these visual wonders, and to lament that so many people will be denied these vistas because of encroaching light pollution all around the world. #milkyway #darkskyweek #natgeo #natgeocreative

In 1970 we lived in the Catskills mountains and there was no light pollution. The night sky was so dark and so full of stars. My daughter, Deneb was born on August 7th. A few weeks later I was up with her and out the window was an amazing comet! It blazed across the night sky and filled the window. It was like a sign about her birth and she was named after the star 💫! I have never lived anywhere since where the night was so brilliant’ I know how you feel about light pollution and agree wholeheartedly.
