Three AAAP members were preset at the Greene County Observing Site Saturday night.  It turned out to be a pretty decent night.

Additional Information:

The area around the Greene County Observing Site has seen a lot of new industry construction; most of it related to the Marcellus Shale boom.  Take a look at the Google Map view of all the new light sources that weren’t there 3 years ago.  About 70% are from the last year alone.  #1 is one of the brightest lights seen in the above Southern Milky Way shot.
