Stars

Woke up a bit ago. 3:00 AM Costa Rica time. Took a look outside. The clouds had cleared and all I could see were stars. Everywhere. Blackest sky I’ve ever seen, completely filled with the familiar winter stars. Grabbed my binoculars and went outside. So many stars. Thick. Everywhere. Milky Way cloud, amazingly bright. Binoculars so full of stars. Impossible to count. Looked down into the pool — stars and more stars reflecting there. Nebula, easy to spot with naked eye, exploded in the binoculars. Southern stars that I’ve never seen before, all the way down to the horizon, saying hello to the Pacific. And now the clouds have started to move back in. Time for a little more sleep.
