One of my most poignant childhood memories is of gazing into the night sky with my father. We’d sit in the damp grass late on summer nights, count the shooting stars, and he would map out the constellations and the planets for me. As the years passed, our small town grew too quickly, and the amber glow from strip malls and streetlights eventually erased these celestial wonders. Sadly, we stopped looking up into the heavens together.Wouldn’t it be exhilarating for us all to bring back the stars—to “free the night”—together? This awe-inspiring VR experience once again reveals the unhindered, unobstructed night sky that my father and I loved so much.
