Our Galactic Home
Looking out into the Universe through the window of a clear night sky warmly bundled up with a warm drink on a cold, winter night is a great way to spend an evening. Since we live in a rural area where much of the land is forested, we can see lots of stars and other celestial objects. Now imagine you lived in a big city with skyscapers. Usually, you can only see the moon and a few of the brightest stars in the sky, because there are so many lights from Earth shining into the sky.
