It makes me happy that in this storefront on West Main Street in Burnsville there is this little audio setup that includes a keyboard, some electronics, a tom-tom, and a miked basketball.

Yancey County's Bare Dark Sky Observatory is a fantastic resource. Plan a trip. They have two large telescopes, laser pointers, reclining chairs, and lots of information to share. When was the last time you spent a couple of hours just looking at the stars, anyway?

Miika sent this perfect trio of woodland dwellers.
