  19. That’s so pretty! It’s hard for us to see much of the sky here, it’s always so bright {I live in Vegas} that it doesn’t get dark enough to see very much.

  41. How beautiful! We live right by the Pacific Coast, and rarely get pretty night skies. Our area gets tons of fog.

  42. Seeing all of the stars and planets can be hard due to the many Las Vegas lights, but since we live on the edge of town, we usually have a great view.

  43. Beautiful. We don’t get to see the sky much since we live in town. I miss it!
