The Stars

  • Gerald North

Abstract

Find yourself a site well away from artificial lights and with a wide open view of the sky and spend a whilegazing upwards on a clear dark night. I guarantee that you will find the scene both majestic and beautiful. I still do, even though I have been skywatching for several decades. I know that countless people have had similar experiences right back through the ages to the dawn of mankind and so it is of little wonder that astronomy is the oldest science.
