We recently took a little "staycation" and played tourist in our own town. This was one of the views from our hotel at twilight. You are looking south along the angled corridor of 6th Avenue. The vista is certainly crowded with tall office buildings (Columbia Center the tallest and the Municipal Building to the left) and hotels (the Crown Plaza all shimmery reflections and the Hilton with its blue logo). If all these buildings weren't in the way you would be looking directly at Mt. Rainier (Little Tahoma peak is just visible to the left). I think what appears to be stars in this southern sky is actually a bit of air traffic out near the airport. There is sure a lot of sparkle and shine to be seen in the downtown skyline on a summer night. Where do you like to stay when you visit Seattle?
