Dusan asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hello,

How come we don't see all stars in the sky at night and why don't we just see a white sky?

What do you think?

We have looked at a similar question in a recent edition of the podcast in which the questioner asked "Why is space actually dark, if there are so many stars out there...?"

Dave's answer explains it very clearly.
