Entry-Level Recognition of Night-Time Wonders!

My image would be an average gaze into the night sky, from the viewpoint of a rural area which is not hidden from view due to the glare of city lights. After having taken a basic-level astronomy course in college, I recall attempting to recognize and to identify various stars, galaxies, and other scenes overhead, which I did not know of beforehand. So many; it was amazing!
