The Sky At Night [Feb. 16th, 2014|12:59 pm]
Tony Grist
I'm not afraid of the dark; I'll quite happily wander round the fields at night; but only so long as I don't move my eyes above the treeline. As soon as I look up at the stars (something I love to do) I start to feel uneasy. The stars are scary. Even more so the gaps between them. Look up and you're looking into Forever- and Forever is looking back.

Don't worry, Forever can't see you - you're too small.

I'm not sure I believe that.

After all, it's got all the time in the world to look.

I used to feel an overpowering sense of wonder at the stars, back when I lived in a place with dark skies and could see the Milky Way... But there's so much light pollution around here the visible stars are numbered in their dozens, not a hint of infinity now.

I don't find light pollution makes any difference. I may not be able to see many stars- but I know they're out there.

This post would make an excellent quote in a Dr. Who episode.

That's probably where I got it from.

I was thinking that too, but remember we are just a speck in the fabric of the cosmos

That's what's so scary.

But are they silent? I'm sure there's plenty of (noisy) life up there.
