    correction: bright*, "so bright" is exaggerating

    if you live in London, guess away from Central, stare out your window for like 10 mins in a pitch black room (or go out in the garden etc) and tell me if I'm right or wrong.

    It's so... grey, pretty bright for a night sky.

    am I going mad? is this the first sign of a disease?

    hope not, it's so beautiful.

    also like an hour before, I just stared out the window looking at this one bright star and my problems seemed so insignificant.

    (btw the sky, not like buildings and ****)

    Since the uk is at a higher latitude than other countries, the night sky appears lighter since the sun is not setting all the way. It’s hard to explain but basically the higher the latitude, the lighter the sky.

    London is a very large city. Because of this it has high amounts of light pollution, that's why the sky appears more of a brownish colour and you can't really see any stars unless you look closely.

    This guy gets it.

    It never gets properly dark in a huge, densely populated city.
