Great picture. Almost impossible to find such a place however east of the big river. North Central PA, WV, the Catskills of NY, VT and ME, UP of MI, and some select areas along the Appalachians.

Unfortunately, the really dark skies of the West are shrinking, too. We were camped near Zion recently -- much more light pollution from nearby towns than there was ten years ago.

After posting, I just clicked on the "full size image" button, and the photo looks somewhat brighter in full size.
