In the warm summer holidays of my youth, my brother and I would lie back on the roof of our cubby house as the sun went down and watch the stars come to life one by one until the Milky Way appeared in all its glory. We could identify the Southern Cross and Orion super quick. We fashioned rocketships out of cast-off cardboard boxes and created space helmets out of ice-cream buckets, planning our trips to the moon with intricate care.
Living in suburbia makes the nights a little different for my own children. The lights of the city blanket much of the sky revealing only the brightest stars. Despite this, the night sky is still as breathtaking for them as is for me. Only yesterday, my daughter and son practiced their moonwalk across our living room (Neil Armstrong style NOT, Michael Jackson). They too talk about travelling to the moon – perhaps it will be a reality for them one day.
