A loud pop from the campfire disrupts the quietude of the night, sending sparks towards the sky and adding a touch of flare to everything around us. Millions of shining stars peek through the fire light, rewarding the few campers crazy enough to brave the freezing temps and frigid winter air with a brilliant starry night. But the campfire is getting sleepy, and so are we. So we pull the blanket of stars firmly around us, close our eyes, and dream of sunshine.
