Fed up with urban LP I drove just 20 minutes out of town.

As other have said you're lucky you can get to a site within 20 minutes where you can see the milky way. It takes me at least 1.5 hours, and to get to a really decent dark site over two hours.

It's really worth the trip, but it turns an observing outing into an expedition.


When I said the Milky Way, I didn't mean in its full glory.
I'm probably talking about Bortle 5-6, but its is significantly better than the Bortle 8-9 in my backgarden
