    Break Out From Artificial Light And Embrace The Universe And The Firament

    If you are city folk please find the time to escape and find a place where our world, the one that hosts our existence, is free of all artificial light. Get cosy with family or friends and lay back for the greatest show off Earth. When an unencumbered Universe becomes your...

    I love to lay down in the field of my grandpa's place. I like to be alone and stare up at the sky like I can't do that in the city where I live. I love to feel free thinking and clearing my thoughts. No body never comes with me and look at the stars with me. It's just what I like...

    I think it's beautiful.

    I hate that I can't see the stars sometimes because of light pollution and clouds. I could lie for hours watching the stars.

    Venus and Jupiter are

    so lucid at the moment - I feel like I could reach right out and touch them. It takes my breath away, the beauty of our universe. "Though my soul may set in darkness, It will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly To be fearful of the night."

    Not something that is easy to do in NJ.

    Too much artificial light that blocks out the stars, but I remember being out in Arizona, in the dessert at night. The sight was amazing. For those that live near a big city, you can't imagine how many stars you don't see.
