Here where I live, in cooma, it is deadly boring, but you do get breath taking views of the stars. Being a country town there is no pollution and the stars shine so spectacularly bright... it is amazing! I can spend hours just gazing at the stars here, they are truly majestic things.

When the planet's are in the right position you can even see Mars and Venus on occasion thanks to the incredulously clear skies here. There is nothing better than gazing at the stars and having a fresh cool breeze blowing over you.

For all of you who live in cities and can't experience this (often) I truly feel sorry for you. It is one of the true wonders of life, at least for me.
