How wonderful it is to watch the sky after sunset! One or two bright dots appear shining in the sky. Soon the number increases and becomes infinite. The whole sky is filled with tiny shining objects – some are bright, others dim. It seems as if the sky is studded with diamonds. They all appear to be twinkling. However, some of them do not twinkle as others do. They simply glow without any flicker just as the moon shines.
