  1. As an amateur astronomy hobbiest I’ve been to some nicely dark area of the continental US, but I had never seen the zodiacal light from anywhere on the continent.

    In 2010 I took a trip to Hawaii, and proposed to my now wife on top of Mauna Kea. That was at 16,000 ft with all the research telescopes around. Best sky viewing I’ve ever seen, obviously. The Orion nebula was a large naked eye object (awesome!).

    Also, after the sun set over the ocean, the zodiacal light was very prominent. Breathtaking!
