did you know?




The reason that you cannot see stars in the daytime is because of the  scattered sunlight that comes from every direction; the scattered light  is so bright that the stars can’t be noticed.  But in a deep  well or pit, or from a sinkhole in a cave, only the light straight down  gets to your eye; not the light scattered from all the other directions.  If you can block out enough of the scattered light, you can see the  stars.
