It mustave been great to look up before the industrial revolution... cellie...
I've read that it wasn't as good as you'd think, lots of wood fires.
I've wondered about that, imagine fishing the Hudson before Henry Hudson sailed up it?

I grabbed this pic off the web, it's a dock on Ram Island in Maine. Even with the floodlight the Milky Way is very clear.

Like I said, "Dark adaptation not needed." Curious as to which of the many Ram Islands that picture was taken at. I know of at least 4. They got their names because everywhere in Maine, including along the coast, sheep farmers would put their rams on island to get them away from their ewes.
