Twilight on the beach

11. February 2022

After sunset, nature can change its appearance very dramatically. With good conditions, it doesn’t take a long time for the first stars and planets to appear in the sky. The Milky Way follows them, and then what you can’t see is a “carpet” full of stars. A dark night can begin and remain for a few hours. During the night of the maximum of the Perseid meteor shower in 2021, I had such an amazing view of the sky itself. Dusk was surrounded by the Moon and three other planets of the Solar system – the bright Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn, which are at the level of the ecliptic. Next time you go to the beach, don’t forget to enjoy the night sky. You certainly don’t regret it.
