On the shores of the cosmic world!

I stood in awe hearing the ocean waves crash against the rocks at Acadia National Park in Maine. The view of endless expanse of water, with a faint horizon that cannot tell where the ocean ends and where the sky begins. As the sun dropped beyond the horizon, millions of stars scattered in the night sky like it was some kind of a painting on a large canvas.

There was nothing but distant howling of foxes, sound of the roaring waves and the smell of the ocean breeze. Yet, I stood there at the edge of the ocean for long hours gazing at the celestial river as it swung across the night sky. A truly astonishing moments of cosmic wonders at the Atlantic shores.
