This is a very good
observing place, easily reachable from Brescia, riding trough the Val
Trompia, between Passo Maniva and Passo Croce Domini. The sky is very
dark, but toward South
there is the Pianura Padana with his lights. Luckily, when I observed
in 2005, all the valley was covered with fog and the sky was perfectly
dark even on the horizon. The horizon is perfect except some small
hills toward North and East.
A sea of fog covered
the whole Pianura Padana, and so the sky was really dark.
