You know what always amazes me?
Even with all the mess....I don't think I've ever seen skies so blue and beautiful as the ones we have here in Belize.
At night....I've never seen so many stars either. Great place to have a telescope.
I like to go out on the end of a pier and lay down....looking up at the stars.
If you lay really still and just concentrate on the stars....it feels like you're transported right up there with them.
