More time for stargazing is at least some compensation for the winter's increased hours of darkness. Here is a link to an excellent night sky image taken from Pic du Midi Observatory. Our enduring fascination with the night sky is one of the links that we have with the people of the ancient world. Looking up at the stars we feel the same sense of wonder and ask some of the same questions, even though we have the advantage of modern technology to help us explore this amazing and mysterious universe.
