Light pollution has meant that many of us cannot see stars again at where we live.
As a boy, I liked going to the roof floor and have a look at the stars.
If I was fortunate, I may see a comet as well.
Here is a picture taken by my wife last year while travelling in Namibia, Africa.
Here you can see countless stars which make you appreciate the vastness of the universe.
It is amazing that the Namibia desert is declared as a Dark Sky Reserve. The following is quoted from an article in CNN:
It’s so far from any human center that the light pollution is non-existent, meaning the night skies are among the darkest on Earth.
The International Dark-Sky Association, the go-to authority on light pollution, has certified the region as one of its Dark Sky Reserves because of the spectacular starry night.
What’s most amazing about a sky so dark is how bright it actually is.
The Milky Way stretches overhead, with the Magellanic Clouds in bursts of light to the side.
Familiar constellations of the southern skies suddenly have millions of neighbors.
These groupings are normally invisible even from small towns.
This is how humans saw the sky for thousands of years.
Perhaps the picture here taken by my wife helps to explain the Dark Sky Reserve in Namibia.
You may be able to see the Milky Way very clearly if you stay up late in the desert of Namibia, Africa,
This is what my wife has done while she was in the desert in Namibia a couple of days ago.
The complete darkness in the desert helps you to see clearly the stars.
Here you can admire the vastness of our Universe and the greatness of the Creator.
Those who have been following my blog may probably know the reason for me not being able to accompany my wife to this trip of a lifetime.
I don’t think I can go away while being a care giver.
