I mentioned that I was at the hangar late last night. One of the things I think is marvelous and beautiful is the sight of an airport at night.
There are different colored lights everywhere, indicating different things. Unlike an urban neighborhood, which might be just a half-mile or so away, there typically aren’t any street lights or the like, so it’s one of the darker places you’ll find in the average city. This means that you can see the stars better. With planes moving about with their own strobe lights on, there’s quite a difference between the dark all around and the brightly colored pinpoints of light – blue, green, red, yellow, white. Sort of like the sky above, but a bit more bright and colorful to the naked eye.
