so me and a buddy are gonna road trip western america this summer on some motorcycles and we were lookin at some pics of the nights sky in death valley



wow..

so can we expect to see this during the summer night?

any thing you can recommend for us to see as we go from Kansas south through New Mexico to the four corners, to the grand canyon, to long beach all the way up to portland then over to yellowstone before heading back to Kansas...?



edit: forget the skies.. things to see/do?

those shots look like they were overexposed or had some special equipment to pick up tiny bits of light, because i've never seen a night sky that brilliant

that being said, i wish i lived there

Haha, as that was loading I thought that was going to be a picture from one of the spammers around here. I've never been to Death Valley but I live in California and it's pretty much impossible not to find something to do. You'll have a good time.

Death Valley is in CA, and I haven't personally been there.
I've been everywhere but Carson City in Nevada.
nothing like that.

I've been through most of mid and lower california at night as well, never seen anything like that either.

Bottom line is you're not going to see something so elegant as that unless you're at a mountain high elevation.

There ya go TS.

Might as well go to the highest mountain nearby with a telescope if you want to see that.
unless you plan on doing something really specific and cool with your road trip besides seeing such things, i suggest you save your time and money

The coolest night sky I've seen is from some isolated hilltop in Yosemite, and it looked nothing like that. Those pictures look like they are out of a science textbook.

The way you get those shots is by putting different radiation filters on the camera. Since the nebula emits different gasses that normal camera lenses can't see, when you put on one of these special filters it allows them to show up.

Whenever I think of the desert in that area I always think of the hills have eyes. So watch out for crazy mutants, or inbred people
