Beautiful pix by Kato-san.
These days you'd have to travel at least 50km from Olympic Dam to get under true dark skies and then you would still see its light dome, it has a light pollution footprint larger than Broken Hill, a town of nearly 20,000 people! ...mines definitely don't use smart lighting at night....
