stars on the beach

February 23, 2010

One night in Goa, we went to the beach at eleven at night and stayed there until almost one o’clock just lying on some beach beds that we dragged onto the sand. Besides the roar of waves in almost pitch black darkness and the cool sea breeze, I was blown away by the sheer multitude of stars. You could clearly see the hazy mist of the Milky Way and the larger stars were quite low in the sky.

As an added bonus, besides the wonderful company and the peaceful drowsiness that the night beach air causes, we were treated to a wonderful display of shooting stars. It was quite a beautiful experience.
