|Winter skies are exceptionally cl ear. The cold air keeps pollutants at bay and gives us the opportunity to gaze at the stars, unparalleled in other seasons.
Science teaches that the starlight we see comes from stars that may have burnt out many light years ago.
But does that really matter? Perhaps it would if you were a scientist, but most of us are not astronomers. We simply appreciate the ability to be awed by the beautiful night sky.
"An old children's rhyme reads:
Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight."
What could be more perfect than the sincere wish of a child?
Tonight, stand beneath the winter sky and find a star that calls to you. Close your eyes and make a wish. May all your wishes come true
