Father, Daughter, and the Core of our Milky Way Galaxy

I was fortunate to spend an entire night camping with my daughter, sitting atop Blackrock Summit in Shenandoah National Park in July of 2020. To make the experience even more amazing... it was the rare perfectly clear Virginia night and we were able to observe the Milky Way and the brilliant Comet NEOWISE from our viewpoint.
