Wagman – 8/14/2014 Super Transparent – By Nate Brandt

Thursday night at Wagman was one of the most transparent nights I’ve ever seen at Wagman.  The MW was easily visible and dipping further into the south than usual.  I took a few pictures around the observatory to try and show how nice the view was.
