What do you know? Its brighter during the day and darker at night. Pretty obvious, right? Almost as obvious as the fact that fewer people every year are exposed to commonplace realities faced routinely by folks who live outside of cities. One reality is the fact that it really is brighter during the day and darker at night. Take an old quilt out in the yard as far from light pollution as you can get. Great company, some good beverages, maybe a bag of chips, and you are ready to lie back and enjoy actually seeing the stars. Take your time. The stars aren’t going anywhere.
