Appreciating the stars

I want to say how much I appreciated and enjoyed Elizabeth Poulson’s Ask a Naturalist column in the December Camden News about the stars of winter.

I’ve always been an astronomy buff and am grateful that those of us who live on the Northside don’t have to look through the glare of city lights to see some of the night-time spectacles overhead.

Yes, we are spending more and more time with our heads staring down at our phones, but we also need to take time to stare at the universe above us and think about the part we play within it.
