archaic the sky, heavens, or upper air
~ World English Dictionary
I woke up at six o’clock this morning, approximately two hours before dawn here in the Bogs this time of year, walked to the living room and looked out the window at the pond. The clouds that had been hanging over us for the past few days had finally moved on, leaving a sky glittering and sparkling with hundreds, thousands of stars scattered across the darkness being reflected back at the sky by the pond. Stars above and below shimmering and twinkling like champagne bubbles.
