During this week we have been treated to the wonders of the night sky. Last night in particular was spectacular. The air was so clean and clear. Even with the strength of a nearly full moon the stars could be seen in all their splendour. The one sadness I have about living where we do is that the street lighting is actually too good - it stops us from seeing the full force of the night sky. Of course I could go for a very short walk and then everything would change.
Up by the monastery just a few miles away from the street light the sky changes to one of hardly being able to pick out the constellations because there are so many stars visible.
