The thunderstorms cleared the air last night and brought back the stars. I found them when I was evaluating the soaked car upholstery. In the clear 3 AM air, the stars hung low in in the early morning. The early morning dark lets you know your place in the universe and it isn't very roomy. The sky was active, however. The summer ends in meteors. They flashed across the Milky Way and then disappeared. The summer constellations still play through the evening, but in the early hours, Orion, the principal, starts to rise and shuffle everyone back to school.
