Russian Nights Theatre and School

"...Have you ever noticed that long before the sunrise, especially in our northern sky, behind the horizon, behind the farthest clouds, there appears a purple stripe, which does not look like evening glow because the sun at this time is still shining in its full brightness? This is a part of morning sunrise for the people from another hemisphere. Then every minute there is a sunrise on the earth, and stand guard at the so a part of its inhabitants can rise to attention next watch. It is not by chance that Providence arranged it this way..." Vladimir Odoevsky, "Russian Nights”
