On the way to Austin Texas.

Close to Dripping Springs which has a population of around 4500. It has an HEB store as well as a Home Depot. Called the Gateway to the Texas Hills and the wedding capital of Texas.

It is now recognised as a Dark Sky Community by the International Dark Sky Association, with it's outdoor lighting reduced to a minimum making the area popular for star gazing.

Surprising giving that high number of inhabitants. What I call dark sky can be seen from the Outback or Atacama.

It is Gerold, it doesn't take much light to spoil the darkness.

Super shot Martyn.  Say hello to my son, his wife and daughter.  They live in Austin.

Thanks John, I will keep an eye out for them.
