Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is one of the darkest sites in the U.S. for observing the sky. The Summer Milky Way, which features Sagittarius and the center of our galaxy, is incredibly bright against the dark background. It is estimated that 2/3 of U.S. residents cannot see the Milky Way from where they live. With less light pollution, the night sky could be reclaimed. The Milky Way is a gift that everyone should try to see.
