The stars have been used by sailors for centuries to navigate the oceans. They served as a reliable compass, helping to determine direction and location. This knowledge allowed sailors to explore the world and travel to previously uncharted lands.
Now, we use our phones. Everything has been made accessible, and all we have to do is click our destination. However, we are losing our connection to the stars, and to the mysteries of the night sky. This disconnection is a loss for us all, as it reminds us of our place in the world and the universe.
There’s something about looking up under a black night sky dotted with pinpoints that makes finding your place seem infinitely more exciting.
