The Last Places On The Planet To Witness The Night Sky As Nature Intended
Every year, the number of stars we can see in the night sky from any particular point on the globe is shrinking by a significant margin.

And while the places to view an unadulterated blanket of stars are fewer and further between, thankfully there's still a couple of prime spots where you can go to take in the raw majesty of the cosmos.
