It’s been said that there are as many stars in the universe as there are grains of sand on earth.
Not that you’d know it looking up at the heavens from the heart of a city.
The glare of urban living all but blots out the cosmic show overhead, denying you the dazzling vision of countless constellations and celestial bodies.

“In Los Angeles, there’s this urban crush,” says Heffernan.
“When you get away from it, with these amazing night skies, you realize that your imagination opens up—you understand that we’re part of something so much bigger.”
