Perfect Night for Stargazing

Lake Metroparks Lake Erie Bluffs Observation Tower

Last night I drove out to one of my favorite parks in the Lake Metroparks system, Lake Erie Bluffs. Situated high on the bluff, the park has walking trails and beach access.  A couple years ago, Tec worked with I A Lewin, PE and Associates to complete the engineering for the 50 ft observation tower at the east end of the park. 

It was a perfect night for stargazing - clear skies and a cool 65 degrees and the stars were bright. The Milky Way was visible, but to my back in the shot above.
