It’s been two years since I first (and last) saw the Milky Way. I miss it. I’m sure I’ll have another opportunity, but I’m not exactly sure when. It’s certainly a lot closer than traveling to Paris or Venice, but heading out to a remote part of the world requires some coordination of schedules. At times, I’m a bit envious of those who can step out into their backyard and view the Milky Way or an Aurora Borealis.
