    I was able to see it from my house for the 1st time the other night, I got up at 4 in the morning to look at Jupiter, and I could barely make it out...I was very pleased.

    Not with naked eyeballs, and barely with a telescope. I need long exposure photography to see any milky way detail from my spot. The whole sky is kind of greenish-yellow here at night, except for straight up.
