I worked out how to make a .gif (it almost spells gift) and put together a couple of images taken one after the other to see what they look like and how they relate to each other on the ground or on a screen, rather than in the sky or through a lens.

It shocked me to see the stars move in front of the ethereal light which I must now consider to be the background. Is it the background to our universe? The sky looks like an unknown number of transparent flat surfaces.

I watched transfixed as the streetlight imitated the moon.
