(Conservative is not a label of convenience. It is a guide to your actions.)
When I was younger we would go out in the bayous and canals in the flat marsh in the middle of no where to bass fish and frog at night.
You could see from horizon to horizon, the belt of the Milky way and an unbelievable amount of stars and their colors with the naked eye, no light pollution.
You would always see several meteors during the night, very bright and fast, but nothing like this one.
Guess that's why I was so impressed with it even with the light pollution.
My house is well lit up outside and the backyard where I was standing has two 100 watt floods shinning and also a street light at the front and one at the side of the house and another at the barn.....Light pollution max.
