I think the bright light at 4 o'clock to the moon is Venus. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
This night in Greece I just pointed and clicked and it was as clear as a bell.
The first time I saw the Milky Way was in Greece sometime in the 80s and it seemed so beautiful.
The night sky in Greece isn't anything like it was at Ayres Rock where there is no light pollution at all, but the difference between home (and we live in the countryside) and Greece is still quite amazing.
But having time to lie and stare at the night sky makes me feel very, very small and wondering about unanswerable why are we here questions. Sometimes it's better to not think about it at all.
