An Introduction to Stars in South Dakota

Wow – it has been quite awhile since my last post.  My wife and I took a trip to Badlands National Park in Southwest – South Dakota.  I’ve been wanting to visit for a long time, and this particular weekend was a great opportunity as it was a new moon – and was below the horizon since around 3pm.  This is just about as dark as it gets here with light pollution rating only sitting around 1 or 2 from the nearby towns.  It was great being out in the middle of the park, in the middle of the night – but also extremely frightening when you know very little about survival.  I made a lot of great photos that night, but this one I have chosen as my social introduction into astrophotography.
