As you can see, here on 1000m on the Weissenstein in the Kanton Solothurn, you can barely see our galaxy. And you can also recognize why, because of all the many lights around you and towards the horizon. If you are looking closer, you can see the beginning of the alps.
And the next time, when you are annoyed about your starscape, think of me, I’m fighting with the same problems. If you want to solve this problem, then do it like me, drive to a less polluted area.
