Frosty Drew Observatory and Ninigret Park in Charlestown, Rhode Island (where Frosty Drew Observatory resides) have a remarkably dark sky overhead and the Milky Way galaxy is mesmerizing to look at there on clear, moonless nights.
This gallery will showcase shots of the Milky Way that we or our members and contributors have taken in the park.
