I stare up at the night sky
It stares back at me
The stars light up the sky
They form patterns. Constellations.
Stories have been told about them for eons.
They are stories of long ago.
About wonderment, adventure, and the origins of the universe.
In the dawn of mankind, this was humanities science and religion
Shining down from the unreachable heavens,
The knowledge of mankind.

A blinking star moves in between them
The satellite is moving our knowledge all over the world
This is mankind’s knowledge of the 21 century.
