One of the most enjoyable aspects of spring for me is the return of warmer nights that allow for more extended stargazing.  Even in my urban locale, where seeing is at best limited to magnitude 4 or so, it is still easy for me to experience a sense of wonder beneath the firmament.  However, there have been rare nights in Northern Minnesota and Northern California, far beyond the reach of metropolitan light pollution, when I have experienced the majesty of truly starry skies as witnessed by our ancestors for so many tens of thousands of years.  It is these special and unpredictable nights to which I look forward all year long.
