- Related blog: I want to see Milky Way
I drove 8+ hours (round trip) to see Milky Way for the first time in my life.
Now that I think back, I believe I have seen the Milky Way a number of times in the past – I just didn’t know what I was looking at.
Milky Way looks like streaks of cloud. It doesn’t look anything like what you see in photographs. I used my point-and-shoot camera for the below picture and digitally enhanced it. I can take much better pictures with my professional equipment, but my trip was not about photography.
I went to Joshua Tree National Park (CA), and I was disappointed to see glowing city lights all around us. It was darker than my neighborhood, but not by much. I have been to darker places in my past. I was disappointed. I need to research more and visit darker locations. Next time, I will bring my professional camera.
If you live anywhere in the world that’s very dark at night, please let me visit you. I will pay for the room.
