Today the IDA certified Death Valley as an International Dark Sky Park---and "Gold Tier" to boot! And the largest so far.

Simply wonderful news. I think I'll just dri e down there and celebrate.

Dark skies.

Had a good time doing outreach astronomy to a bunch of campers at Mesquite Springs in January on MLK weekend. I showed a lot of brighter objects until 9PM. Went to bed got up at 2AM and had a great time by myself looking at the dimer stuff. There wasn't any light coming from the rest of the campground then. I couldn't see a light dome on any horizon.
