Quote:...Seems to me like this turnoff would have pretty severe skyglow, less than 3 miles from Lenox, and with plenty of light from Stockbridge, Pittsfield, and Albany as well. But I suppose it would seem like heaven compared to the immediate Albany suburbs. Which, in turn, are far better than my city home in Cambridge, MA. Goes to show how huge the range between cities and dark skies really is.
