It may have taken a few nights and a lot of lost sleep, but this was absolutely incredible. It was pretty unreal and very exciting to see. This wasn't the original location I had in mind, but the 2-5am launch window found me with a bit of a late start. I ended up rushing here in fear that I would be driving and end up missing it all together. The light pollution was a big concern and can be seen lighting up the beach, but overall I was pleasantly surprised at the visibility of the event. Being able to get an unexpected bonus view of the Milky Way made it even more exciting.
