After a long night of stargazing, your best friend left you a cryptic note. A single sentence is written on the note, in beautifully printed cursive:
I softly gazed nigh a lit, dull skyline, contemplating a dismayingly frozen future.
What was your best friend up all night looking at?
The cryptograms tag is there for a reason, guys. Seriously, anything that you think could be the answer is not. You will know you have found the answer once you do. The sentence was chosen to sound akin to stargazing, but if you start parsing it for meaning you've already gone way too far.
Recently, there was a puzzle about a specific 'international animal' whose format was similar, albeit certainly not identical, to the format of this poem. This should key you in on how to read past the words.
