While heading east on I-10 or I-12 towards the Lake Pontchartrain Bridge in Louisiana, I got off at one of the exits to take a nap at one of the rest areas or parking lots below the elevated interstate.. Before going to sleep, I went exploring a little north on the nearby dirt road.. I don’t remember any artificial lights around for a while, and was able to get a couple nice long exposures of the night sky..
