hi all,

I had last week three dry, very clear nights in Bavaria.
I stood 10km north from Garmisch-Partenkirchen in a dark valley at 860m altitude between 1600-1800m mountains.

Bye Christian

Stunning! I've only seen it once, so I know it takes special conditions from most sites, even good ones, to see it.

Just awesome.


Clear skies!

Hi.

Well, your sketch is terrific. I checked Wikipedia for Gegenschein and now I know what it is.

Congrats for this nice observation.

Andre.

hi all,
thanks for You reply.
So I have inspire to search under the "Gegenschein"
If You have a clear dark sky far away from citylights it`s not to hard to see it .

Bye Christian
