Let's Look at the Sky

The Points of Light we see with our eyes

When we look up at the sky on a fine cloudless night, we see hundreds upon hundreds of twinkling points of light, some faint, others much brighter. We can see them best standing on a hill or high ground in the country; in towns, because of the smoke and the bright lights, we cannot see so many. Though most of these starts seem to flicker and twinkle, there are a few which are steady. These are not really stars but planets, quite near when compared with the stars, which are far away in space.
