Setting up a telescope in DC?
This is likely a long shot, but is there anywhere in or very near to DC that is A) away from street lights, B) with open views of the sky, and C) open to the public at night?
I’d love to have somewhere to go set up my telescope, but my front yard is surrounded by bright streetlights and doesn’t have much of a view of the southern sky.
I’m fully aware that I live in a light-polluted city and not many stars are visible, but the major planets and moon are, and that’s all that’s really fun to look at through a small telescope anyway.
