I want to see Milky Way

I would like to see the best view of the Milky Way Galaxy possible with my own naked eyes, preferably at someplace in the continental US (48 states). I guess I will take a trip for 1-2 nights. I am willing to spend x amount of money.

I can use your help. Let me know if:

  • You own or know an Airbnb location where viewing of Milky Way is possible.
  • If you know places where I can go to view Milky Way.
  • If you know astronomy clubs, you can recommend them.
  • If you want to go with me or meet up with me there.
  • If you know of Milky Way viewing events.
  • If you have anything to tell me about it.

So far, all I know is that the best time to view Milky Way is the Summer months centering July. I have about 5 months (20 weeks) to get ready. So, the search is on.

The only picture of the Milky Way I photographed so far.

PS. Next on my list is to see Northern Lights (Aurora) – Which will require me to travel to Alaska or Canada. After that, I will travel to Texas or New York to see Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024.
