I was fortunate enough to get out of town on Thanksgiving and spend some time at Fool Hollow lake in Show Low Arizona. You can see a little bit of light pollution due to city lights near the base of the Milky Way as it leads up to the sky. Even with moderate light pollution the Milky Way is still something to behold and its something that makes this photographer amazed every time. If you want to start practicing astrophotography or just want to see the Milky Way for once in your life, I recommend finding a dark sky on a night as close to the new moon as possible.
