Have you ever heard a strange sound in the brush while looking up at the night sky? Have you ever felt a "presence" that made the hair on the back of your neck stand on end? Have you ever sniffed the air in the dark and wondered if that close, musky smell was a real life Ursa Major only a few yards away? Maybe you've wondered what it's like to travel with an expedition to Mexico for a total solar eclipse, or to South America to see a famous comet. Ever wanted to get out under dark skies with a telescope, or binoculars, or just your naked eyes, but were worried about razorbacks and rattlesnakes; or panthers and polar bears? Or have you ever wondered if getting out in the wild places, and looking up, might just change your life? Many readers will have experienced adventures of a kind, but many may not have. I invite you to read what both amateur and professional astronomers have encountered while doing astronomy in the wild places
