Open to Sunlight

Our own star makes daylight that removes the other stars from view. Rather than look at Sun's physical nature, examine here its marvelous effects as it plays with and off the air. Sunlight creates sunsets and sunrises that range from quiet and peaceful to colorfully spectacular. It is observed in the blue sky, in rainbows and colored rings, and in peaceful twilights. Sunlight is seen at night reflected from the Moon and planets, which leads us inexorably back to the stars. Open now to SUNLIGHT.
