I love stars but, unfortunately, don’t see many. This week, resting from a day of hiking, we sat listening to the gentle wash of Lake Superior’s waves against the rocks below. The sky just 12 miles from the Duluth city limits was brilliant with stars and the light brush of the Milky Way.
We live in the light shadow of metro Chicago. That’s no excuse because we’ve been to Tucson, which has a great light ordinance that limits the light pollution from streets, parking lots, homes and businesses.
We enjoyed a sky brilliant enough to humble anyone with thoughts of our small hold in the universe.
