Arizona is special. In an hour or less, you can get away from the light pollution and view the awesome beauty of the Milky Way. I wonder, how many years before there are no dark skies and the Milky Way is lost?
I apologize for this video, it's a bit rough (a combination of technical difficulties and operator error), but I love watching the Milky Way trace its way across the sky. Eventually, I'll get this type of video right.
This is a post for Skywatch Friday. Check them out for photos from photo bloggers around the world.
