When was the last time you took in a full sky-dome of stars?
Losing touch with the magnificence of the night sky is one of the costs of living in a light polluted city.
It’s an easy cost to overlook, but not one we should take lightly. There is no view more sobering than the rich redness of gargantuan hydrogen clouds swallowing up the sky, speckled with evergreen fireflies casting scattering starlight across neon blue spacedust.
Its sheer scale serves as a reminder of how miniature we are.
That’s not to say we don’t matter. Only that whatever may be plaguing us matters even less.
