A mural of the night sky, with a full moon. Constellations are drawn in the sky, the sky shows an arm of the Milky Way galaxy in fuchsia and dark blue, the full moon shows a figure of a rabbit in it. The foreground is a silhouette of a hill with a wolf howling, people pointing at the sky. The bottom has numbers that show how the darkness gets lighter towards the city due to light pollution.
