I live in the Eastern Woodlands. I have been surrounded by trees since birth. If I can see horizon, I am probably at a lake. I don't swim, boat, or fish, so I don't have much reason to go to lakes. Between the trees, buildings, lights, and wet weather, there's generally not much sky to see, so I rarely notice it. The night sky here is a few stars. I have been far enough away from the metropolis that I could have seen many more stars, but I did not have the habit of looking up.
