Dark places outside Bangalore

By manu1001; Published 12 Nov 2009

A bunch of us are planning to watch the upcoming Leonid meteor shower (Nov 17th). Can someone suggest a few places near Bangalore that are good for sky gazing in the middle of the night.

How far outside do we need to go to get good dark skies?

And also, how come BAS is not organizing any event for this?... unless I'm mistaken?
