we had a campfire out there but it wasn't very bright, so you could just look up at the sky and see all the stars. so many! and a couple of satellites. i've seen so many shooting stars out there, and a comet once, which was awesome. if you lay on the lawn and look up long enough, you'll see them. we used to keep tallies when we had family friends with kids over, and my tally would get up to 8 or 9, every time. and the comet was huge, went across the whole sky with a bright trail.
and the last time i just looked up at them and wished i could fly. because a) flying would be so cool and 2) they were so pretty i wanted to get closer.
