Night Sky Over Bodie

Bodie, CA, AUG 2014 Those of us that have camped in dark places know the beauty of the countless stars in a sea of black. But, Friday evening, I got the sense of what it must have been like to live in a remote area in the latter part of the 19th century. Night was night; it was dark. I suspect, there was light from scattered kerosene lamps and wood fires, but when the townsfolk settled in for the night, the town must have felt ghostly and scary. Check out the Andromeda Galaxy in the upper left corner.
