National Geographic Travel

The light pollution of large cities are immense, often visible from a long distance. On this November evening I was enjoying the view of the Milky Way from Death Valley National Park in California, also a designated Dark Sky Park. But to my surprise toward southwest the yellow light dome of the Greater Los Angeles Area with population of about 20 million was still visible in the image from a distance of over 270 km (170 mi). In the foreground is Badwater area, marking the lowest point in the entire North America, with an elevation of 282 ft below sea level (-86 meters). Follow me @babaktafreshi for more stories under stars.

I love your work... Can't say it enough. One love from Jamaica. ❀️


If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they would live a lot differently.
