There is a reason why it’s called Hurricane Ridge but on this summer’s night, there wasn’t one flag blowing in the wind nor a twinkle in a star. As I made my way up the windy mountainous road, I came upon about a dozen large telescopes. To my surprise, several members of the Bremerton Astronomy Club had set up their telescopes for the general public. I took a peek into each one as they focused on clusters millions of light year away. The clarity of the sky was one of the best I had ever seen and I enjoyed the other element that I wasn’t expecting.
