Yesterday, an abstraction: deep blue expanse, morning star high to the west, two jet trails angling in from the east, palely illuminated by the not-yet-risen sun.

Today, just quiet dark fading into light. No opportunity to experience the best moments -- the delicious last pause of darkness, then pure thrill when the sun smiles up over the horizon. With buildings and trees and streetlamps and schoolwork blocking the view, day and night lose all definition.
