    This is not strictly specific to the Apple Watch, so please bear with me.

    What is the night sky like in Cupertino, does anyone here know? Do they have heavy light pollution? Can they only see a handful of bright stars on a clear night? I'm thinking that must be the case. What else would give Apple the idea that space is gray (or grey)?

    A glass of Coonawarra CabSav for Costino1, please!

    Seriously though, and I realise that this may not resonate with people who don't care about space or astronomy, the first time I read/heard Apple use the term "space gray" I thought "WTF" (or vernacular similar to that).

    I am sure Apple's version of Space Gray is in this picture somewhere.

    What color is space? Seems to be many colors and shades. Not sure the point of this thread.

    Cupertino is between San Jose and San Franciso in the relatively densely populated peninsula. Yeah there is light polution.

    BTW, the color of the universe is Cosmic Latte!

    Are you talking about a light pollution map?

    I lived out the there for a while, you're lucky to see any stars unless you travel at least an hour.
