The sky is full of stars!

We live about two hours south of the centre of Sydney and the sky here is very clear.
Tonight I rediscovered one of the reasons we live here. The sky was FILLED with stars! With the naked eye you could see that the Milky Way was made up of millions of dots of light.
When we first moved here I realised that God's promise to Abraham (to have descendants numbered like the stars in the sky) was for a lot more than the few one sees through the background light of the city streets.
Of course this also means that it is quite dark at night. On our first night home we stumbled around barely familiar corridors looking for the bathroom. Nightlights were one of the early essentials.
