This month we discuss all things Nighttime!
Did you know that Earth’s Moon is in fact only a grey disc in the sky with cratering invisible to the naked eye? That 12% of people dream entirely in black and white? That communities and counterculture self-organized and build new politics at night? That the far side of the moon has never seen planet Earth and therefore it is very quiet? That silence is the key to understanding any expeditions? That we are not alone and we can see and connect with the universe at night?….!!! Meet the most incredible humans on this planet and get answers and facts straight from them as they all share their unique experiences.
