    Re: Dark, dark skies in the northeast post-Irene

    It cleared out a lot of the junk in the atmosphere, that's for sure.   I don't know how much the power outages knocked down the light pollution however - perhaps modestly in the Boston area.

    Tonight will tell the tale, as it's quite clear now - but power outages are relatively localized.

    I got part of a roof knocked off on my house on the Cape - still assessing the cost/damage.   The house is on a bluff and took the southerly winds head-on.    Also, the storm surge was quite impressive.

    Off-topic, but for those of you out in the northeast who have power and internet (and can thus read this message) but happen to be in an area where most people don't have power, the night sky is going to be spectacularly dark tonight and probably for a day or two after. It's New Moon, too, so even better. Tell everybody you can to get outside and see the summer Milky Way. Have grandchildren? Show them something they've probably never seen before: a really dark sky filled with thousands and thousands of stars!

    I do hope everyone out there came through ok. Obviously the storm was weaker than expected, but it still left billions of dollars in damage across the region.
