From beneath the thin canopy of trees, walking up Union Street, the number of stars visible this evening is epic! Previously unreckoned save on such nights as of blackouts!
Is the apparent brightness of them due to a notable decrease in light pollution caused by the frugal populous of a nation in energy crisis? (This seems unlikely…) Does it relate to the freaky weather of our greenhouse planet? Or have they simply got less shy around cities? Gone bold in a new millennium (as defined by we tiny things so many many light years away…)
These and other questions remain unanswered.
Perhaps the city will get snow in addition to these pinpricks of glitter, and the park will transform into a new landscape altogether. This is what my cameras are hoping for.
