Have you ever looked at a day and night world map and wondered how that line between day and night looks like in reality?
I happened to be on a plane while crossing this day/night border - having the last rays of light on one side and all consuming blurred darkness on the other side. From above it seems like you’re leaving recognisable world behind you and are about to be swallowed by the undefined dark mist of oblivion.
I haven’t been in such awe for a long time… because then, once swallowed by that mist you appear on the other side. The side of crisp night dotted by shiny stars that are closer than ever before.
