Coming into the Summer night skies, when you don’t have to shiver to observe the sky.
Slow down and go outside at nightfall. Look up and consider the stage.
Starting with where you stand on this planet in relation to the light source. Place East and West from where you observe. Find Polaris, the North star (the two stars that form the Big Dipper’s front edge point to it).
That will give the perspective of your planet’s direction of rotation, it’s axis and Earth’s seasonal orientation to the Sun.
This is a magnificent picture of the Moon, with Jupiter and it’s 4 largest moons. If you were on the Moon looking back at Earth, it would look very much like this. Just after dark you would be standing on the terminator - the line between night and day, just barely on the dark side.
The Moon and multiple planets - especially Jupiter, with binoculars you will see it’s moons also align pointing at the Sun. Now you can see the ecliptic, the entire system’s orbital plane, and where you stand in relation to it.
All at once, you become aware that you have expanded your perspective to encompass it all, the gravitational embrace of the entire system that your planet participates in, down to the spot you are standing on!
Pause there and witness the wonder of where your place is in it all, and then go back inside and get warm. Don’t be surprised if someone asks you what you are smiling about.
