RDP # 18: Stellar

The night sky is certainly stellar in ever way, but that’s also a tautological statement, because stars are stellar. The word star comes from the Latin stella and stellar which gives us star. I love the night sky. The sun actually hides the universe to the human eye, it only comes clear at night, and when it does it is stunning.

”Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and what makes the universe exist. Be curious.” Stephen Hawking

The sun is blinding
The light hides everything
darkness makes all clear

  3. You and I had similar thoughts today. Love the night sky when there are no city lights to compete with the heavens.
