The Outer Heavens

As usual, tremendous writing by Antoine de Saint Exupery (photographed above about 1937), this time from 'Prisoner of the Sand' in 'Wind, Sand, and Stars';

"In the profound darkness of certain nights I have seen the sky streaked with so many trailing sparks that it seemed to me a great gale must be blowing through the outer heavens."
