Adirondack Nights

There are special places on our planet, although not as many as in the past, where a child can look up and see stars and the happenings in a truly dark sky. In the 1950's, cool autumn nights in New York's Adirondack Mountains brought star so bright I could almost touch them, with planets and comets wandering through the darkness and auroras dancing across the variable moon. The spectacle required some patience, but was free for alll who cared to look up. It was magical, awe-inspiring, and captured my imagination for a lifetime.
