Tropical Palm, Hot Moon & Stars

Hot night in the City.  A tropical palm frames the moon.  The Mayans mastered so much astronomy because the heavens swam above them in brightly colored movements. Now there is light pollution and the sky becomes just another part of the city.

Now there is light pollution and the sky becomes just another part of the city.

Walking the night walk. Here at the side of the Santa Ana church. The Mayans had the deep black sky and bright stars. They couldn’t help developing sophisticated astronomy. There it was. That was before cities grew and, with them, light pollution to hide the star spectacle bearing gods & legends.
