The Eastern Oregon Sky could arguably be considered one of the best star viewing areas on the planet! I wish I had made it out there for this year’s meteor shower, but since I didn’t here is a photo from a camping trip last summer…it will have to do until next year!
Last Weekend I had the opportunity to travel through Central Oregon and visit the Pine Mountain Observatory outside of Bend where I was able to check out Saturn and the M1 star cluster through high powered telescopes. Central Oregon has one of the best night sky viewing areas in the world and I would highly encourage anyone interested in astronomy to go visit sometime. It is simply incredible! This is my first ever attempt at night sky photography so I hope you enjoy!
