I took a trip to Saaremaa in Estonia in search of some light pollution free skies..but the sky was full of lights, even without the moon and artificial lights: Auroras were blazing far in the north and rest of the sky was colored with Airglow and the Milky Way was shining majestically in between it all. Thats some light pollution I dont mind about! What a night!
Its such a shame that I really have to make a big trip away from Helsinki in order to find some really dark skies!
