Winter Skies Trivia Question

From Farmer's Almanac  2017 page 100
WHY ARE THERE MORE STARS IN THE WINTER


One reason is that the cold air doesn't have as much moisture as warm air!
Summer skies often appear hazier because actually, they are.
The warm moisture -laden atmosphere of summer is thicker and less transparent, than the crisp, cold winter dome , making it harder to see what lies beyond.


 

 Any more ,it's hard to tell stars from Satellites
