Moon rising over New Bedford

My home, New Bedford, Massachusetts, gained worldwide reputation in the 1800s as the greatest whaling port and the richest city per capita in the world.

Pathway to the Stars

I found a pathway to the stars and its not too far from home 😀 Aligning the milky way galaxy with particular landscapes can prove challenging since the orientation of our galaxy’s core shifts directions as the months change. Thankfully, in the northern hemisphere, the summer months allow for the best milky way viewing fairly…

Break in the Storm

The past couple of days in Southeastern New England have been a bit of a heat wave. And being from Massachusetts, we all know that heatwaves usually break with thunderstorms!

Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.

During a once in a lifetime experience, I was given the opportunity to explore the island of Kauai in Hawaii. While there some friends and I made it out to Kalalau lookout on the Northwest side of the island. We stayed just long enough for the sun to set and a brilliant display of stars to…

One of the issues I often run into in Southeastern MA and RI is the amount of noise pollution. The lights from…
