You look up while standing in a non light polluted dark sky, all of a sudden the feeling of being small becomes a feeling of non existent. The mighty sea becomes 1-1000th of a grain of salt, as the stars plunge towards your soul, where you can reach up and grab them. A sea of stars that extends beyond the boundaries of your mind.
The night sky displays the origin of our birth. It at times puts on a show with shooting stars, comets and something closer to home, the aurora borealis. The sun's rays bouncing on the northern magnetic pole of planet Earth.
Recently such a show could be seen as far south as New York State, Pennsylvania and other northeast states. Unfortunately for New York City and other large urban areas, the light pollution of man made light foiled the show.
Many cities are now in the process of placing light shields on street lights that keep artificial light rays from reflecting upwards, leaving the pageantry of the night sky visible to the naked eye.
The dark sky society is determined to keep the wonderful majesty of the night sky visible to all humans, as the stars are us and we are them.
May you always look up and look in...
