This is a cafeteria style restaurant on Yellowstone Lake in Yellowstone National Park. I have mixed feelings about trying to do astronomy while on a trip. During this car trip, most nights were cloudy, had smoke from wildfires, or were in a city with bright lights. While there were a few clouds on this night, the setting was peaceful and relaxing.
