The event’s location offers three things to be truly dark: no air pollution, no light pollution, and an altitude high enough to be mostly free of naturally occurring aerosols (mainly dust, humidity, and volcanic ash). Likely, California sits atop the Modoc Plateau which provides the perfect trilogy of these three variables.
