It is a truly awe inspiring experience to gaze into an infinite space studded with moons and planets, stars and galaxies. But often it’s not dark enough to see much. Light pollution in towns and cities robs the night skies of their clarity.

I will never forget, shortly after moving to Benar, walking back home from the village after our Friday night choir practice. It was a beautifully clear winter night. I looked up at the sky and saw the stars as I have never, ever seen them before. It was truly incredible.
