Tales from the Arizona Sky Village

In October 2008, I got to spend three incredible nights under a pitch-black sky.

Back in October 2008, Astronomy Editor David J. Eicher and I had the chance to travel to the Arizona Sky Village (ASV) for three nights of dark-sky observing. Instead of going to the main ASV site near Portal, Arizona, however, we strayed about 20 miles away to the site's eastern branch, dubbed Rancho Hidalgo, where a large development operation is underway.

Because four pages in the June issue ("Discover the sky's deepest darkest secrets") wasn't enough to cover our adventures, I've compiled a gallery of images, videos, and blogs to help you enjoy the experience with us.
