Believe it or not, the stars are actually much dimmer from space than they are from the ground, to the point where it’s difficult to pick them up on normal visible-light camera equipment. Atmospheric refraction is not only the reason the stars twinkle in the sky, but also the reason they’re so easily visible from earth.
