Night Sky

Tonight as I was walking home, I was noticing how bright the sky was and I couldn’t help but wonder, why…  Since it was cloudy enough to be lightly raining, I knew it couldn’t be the brightness of the moon.  And since it was already 9:30pm, I knew it couldn’t be sunlight (in eastern China).  So I started looking around and realized that was light pollution!  The two tall, very brightly lit towers know as Grand Gateway (about 20min walk from my apartment) were lighting up the whole sky due to their reflection by the low-hanging clouds.  It was so weird–it was like twilight.  Or like a solar eclipse.

So, what do you think ?
