Southern Sky from Northern Nebraska

One of the darkest night skies in the country can be found in north central Nebraska, in our instance, not far from the Merritt Resort, Snake River Campground, near Valentine, Nebraska. This view is towards the galactic center, in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. Clouds come in dark in truly dark skies, not like in light polluted cities where cloud bottoms come in lite up from city lights.
