What's More Beautiful Than Camping Under Innumerable Stars?

One of the best things about camping is getting away from the pollution of the big cities. Not just air pollution, mind you, but also light pollution, the kind of pollution that makes it impossible for us to see the true face of our night skies. And when you do go outside the urban centers, a huge universe is unveiled before you, as you look at night's sky, and you can finally understand the innumerable splendor of the stars.
