Starry, starry night.

On the drive home today, I couldn't help but notice the full moon that was lighting up the nightime sky. It got me wondering about what I would see in the sky on the nights we'll be sleeping on the deck of the felucca, floating up the Nile, or sleeping in the desert of the Wadi Rum. So, I Googled "Egyptian sky" and as expected found endless information on the role that the stars played on Egyptian life. I think that the astrological signs as we know them today we created by the Egpytians as the symbols often show up in their descriptions of the night time sky. Can't wait to see the Egyptian sky for real!!
