Isipin mo ha~ kung ang kalawakan ay walang hanggan at ang mga bituin ay nagkalat sa bawat dako ng unibers, nararapat lamang na maliwanag ang kalangitan sa tuwing sasapit ang tagdilim. Yung tipong magmumukhang binudburan ng diyamante ang langit na may pagkakaiba sa liwanag ng tanghaling tapat. (Teka, tinatagalog ko yung sinusulat ko at di pa tapos. Wag OA. Mehehe.)
If the universe is infinite and the stars are just scattered everywhere the cosmos, then the luminous matter around the space and the universe should completely light up the dark sky of the night. It should have been like the morning sky but with hues differentiation of luminosity and sparks and spots. Moreover, light should have enough time to reach our planet considering the age of the Earth, of the Stars around us, and of the Universe.
If the universe is too old and the stars live up to millions of years and light travels at the speed humans can’t comprehend, then the photons lurking the universe should have reached our galaxy right from this very moment. And for that matter, we should have been enjoying the vast Christmas light offered by plasmas of each celestial being a couple of light years away from us.
And there should have been no dark night sky. Tonight should be a different one because I believe otherwise.
Of course, I am wrong, yet again. And thanks to Tony Darnell.
