Milky Way at Pemaquid Harbor

This is one of my favorite spots and one of the reasons I moved to Maine: the view of the Milky Way at Pemaquid Harbor from a good friend's house. The ridiculously bright light across the harbor is coming from Fort William Henry. A few years ago they installed a dusk-to-dawn sodium vapor lamp to light up the property all night long, every night of the year for "safety reasons." I can remember how many more night sky features were visible from this location during the years previous to the light being installed.
