Humans are not alone on this world. We are surrounded by a vast and diverse biosphere of more animals, insects, and plants than you can imagine or comprehend. A lot of the country has sort of forgotten this as people have moved into cities and away from the wilder parts of the United States, but most of us still have a strong connection to the animal life that we used to be so intertwined with.

The moon is more than 200,000 miles away and still dominates our sky whenever there are no clouds to get in the way. The world we live on is fantastic and the skies above are part of what makes that so true. Nothing gives a cool night more beauty than the swath of the Milky Way overhead and crickets chirping in the distance.
