It so happened that the inhabitants of big cities practically don't see the starry sky. This happens for various reasons – from a large amount of artificial lighting to constant density clouds and nebula.
It turns out that today's citizens, one way or another, are sick with stellar insufficiency. This is very bad because you can dream only under the starry sky above.
Though for a short time, we decided to change this situation a little bit for the residents of St. Petersburg and add a little magic to already amazing enough river channels. And although we cannot clean the night sky, we can recreate its reflection on the water.
So during the festival, at the surface of the Moyka River, our Stenograpffia team scattered about 400 stars that constellatied in the Dragon, the Little and Big Dipper and spread out for several meters along the water surface.
And while our guys on the boat were scattering the stars along the river, a lot of spectators gathered on the river bank. They wanted to take a hand in creating Star Trek too. Adults and children for a moment believed in miracle. They closed their eyes and threw stars into the water, thinking about their inmost desires. Such a striking scene.
