We've had a couple dark nights with good stars and a visible Milky Way here in Salinas. Time to head for the dark hills. Will be there well before sunset.

Well thanks John for the reminder to post a correction here. Phooey, last time I'd checked the Pinnacles NP site, there was nothing about a road closure, so I was feeling all sanguine. Just did check back (unprompted I swear), and yep according to
https://www.nps.gov/pinn/index.htm
right on their front webpage, 146 will be closed 2100-0600 thru June. So stargazing is fine if you want to stay till 6 am.

You said 22 July. That's supposed to be just fine.

I'll head to the Peak this evening! Will be in the SW lot.
