I'm originally from the UP. It sucks because I'm not able to go back home and visit as much as I'd like to. My family all being there is, of course, my favorite part of the UP, but my second favorite part is highlighted in this video. The thing that you never notice when you live in the city is that you can never see all of the stars. There's too much light here, and it drowns out a lot of the smaller, dimmer stars. In the UP, you don't get that light pollution, so on clear nights, you get to see scenes like these.
