Day 8: Out of the blue

The sky is very much brighter than I have ever seen it before. Travelling coreward I know that there will be more stars: a full sky that leaves no dark place to hide.

I've heard the rumours and stories told in bars, and seen the holo-vids from those that have returned.

There's a particularly bright patch - a much higher density of O, B, A and F types than burn so very hot at the blue end of the spectrum. The bright light crowds in and I'd better start getting used to it.

There's bloody nothing else to look at right now so carry on... carry on...
