Art and the philosophy of life

The picture shows a clear night sky from Brazil that
is not only reflected from standing water but by a person
holding a mirror.
Please see the explanation for more detailed information.

We don’t really get to see the sky that often, in the Chicago area.  Pollution, constant cloud cover, as well as trees and buildings.  When I’m in a place where the sky is visible, it’s the most amazing thing.

Sometimes, in the winter, when it’s freezing cold and the trees are bare, we can see some stars but I’ve never seen anything like parts of the Milky Way.  It’s so beautiful.

  1. The clearest night sky I ever saw was in the northern part of Western Australia – way out in the boonies with no light pollution. More stars that you could shake a big stick at and a full moon you could read a newspaper by.

  2. Gorgeous. I would love to go way up north, away from the pollution and just gaze up and the unfettered sky… one day.

  3. You absolutely must go. The universe has given you a ticket…use it and have a fabulous time.
