Take a moment to imagine how the night sky will look a few hours from now. The lights of the Bay Area may shine around you, making the darkness a little lighter. And of course there’s likely to be some fog. Still you’ll probably see a few stars, glowing dimly against an endlessly dark backdrop.

But drive further away from the city, perhaps up to Mt. Tamalpais, and the night sky dazzles.
