Light From the Bay Area Affecting the Night Sky at Pinnacles National Park, 2014

It is sort of beautiful is its own sick way, but I do pine for a night sky that excludes the intrusion by others into my view-shed. The sky at Joshua Tree National Park was somewhat better, but I think that was so because there is less moisture in the air there. The last time I really experienced a "natural" night sky was when I was in a remote corner of the Himalaya at the village of Karzok.
