The world by night is different from the world by day. After dark, the moon and stars become visible in the sky and the world becomes quieter and perhaps more mysterious. The poems in this mini-anthology celebrate the beauty of nighttime and the night sky in particular, and the story relates a nocturnal adventure. The articles highlight a familiar constellation and an interesting star, and the activities offer two ways to become more familiar with the night sky.
