In Reply to: Lots of apps/websites out there to tell you when stuff is passing overhead... posted by AK -- Wife of Astronomer on Tue, Jan 03 2023 at 09:42 AM CST:
I live on a street with just one streetlight and it is right in front of my house. Several neighbors have very bright porch lights and some have other lights in their yard. And there is an apartment complex behind me with bright lights for their parking lot. I have blackout curtains all over my house!
But I live by a school with a football/track field and it is very dark there at night, so that is where I hang out to watch things. And DH's brother lives way out in the desert and that view is amazing.
My brother, when he was alive, lived out in the desert and I got him a telescope. It wasn't fancy/expensive, but he just loved it.
DH follows astronomy pages and lets me know when there are things to see ... which I would do every night if I could.
