We're just back from our summer vacation, spent on Rainy Lake in the Boundary Waters with friends. I think the best part of experience was taking Katherine and Will out to see the stars in the dark nights. They were awestruck by a view of the sky that they had little idea existed.
The wonder of the night sky has been a constant for 100,000 years of human history, what are the consequences of extirpating it from our awareness?
