Perhaps this is obvious, but it had never occurred to me in any conscious way, and I wonder how far it is true, as I have a romantic image of people navigating by the stars.
Will think about this today when we are travelling to Brazil on a night flight. Will think of those daytime travellers and those starlight navigators.
Safe travels, day or night.
For ancient travellers travelled only by day.
