A Night Sky Oasis
Lights from Santa Fe and Albuquerque encroach from the North and West.
The 285 corridor is a dark sky oasis. To the north, the Santa Fe light dome obliterates the lower third of the sky. To the Southwest, the lights of greater Albuquerque shine out above Sandia Mountain.
While the lights of Santa Fe and Albuquerque appear restricted, they do measurably impact the sky overhead and to our east and south.
Still, our overhead, east and south are beautifully dark. It’s in our power to keep them that way!
