Massachusettes has some great photography locations, and we plan to get to this state to do much more. We have done a short excursion through this area in a milky way photography journey. Massachusettes has some very dark skies that are perfect for milky way photography.
Officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is the most populous state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. The Atlantic Ocean borders it to the east, the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island to the south, New Hampshire and Vermont to the north, and New York to the west. The capital of Massachusetts and the most populous city in New England is Boston. Over 80% of Massachusetts’ population lives in the Greater Boston metro area, a region influential upon American history, academia, and industry. Originally dependent on agriculture, fishing, and trade, Massachusetts was transformed into a manufacturing center during the Industrial Revolution. During the 20th century, Massachusetts’ economy shifted from manufacturing to services. Modern Massachusetts is a global leader in biotechnology, engineering, higher education, finance, and maritime trade.
