If you’ve ever looked up at a night sky that had so many stars that you couldn’t make out any of the constellations, then whether you own a telescope or not, you’ve likely seen such a sight while out in the wild places. These are the dark sky sitesMoreIf you’ve ever looked up at a night sky that had so many stars that you couldn’t make out any of the constellations, then whether you own a telescope or not, you’ve likely seen such a sight while out in the wild places.

These are the dark sky sites far from the bright city lights. Astronomers, both amateur and professional, regularly seek out the wild places so they can gain access to bright starlight. But while there, they are at the whim of the gloriously untamed wilds and if they spend enough time looking up, they are sure to have an adventure…or at least a story worth telling.

This book consists of dozens of true stories- some are exciting, and some are sublime, but none are dull. So if you have ever heard a strange sound in the brush while under the darkest skies- or felt a “presence” that made the hair on the back of your neck stand on end while looking up- or sniffed the air in the dark and wondered if that close, musky smell was a rabbit, a raccoon, or a big bear, then you will relate to the stories told here.

You will also get insight into the bright, focused, and sometimes quirky personalities of those who shun city lights in their quest for the infinite. And occasionally, for an adventure.
