Hi:

Well people can "contemplate" the stars without actually visit them, but it take a person that is able to see the sky.
If he is blind, maybe there is some contemplation while reflecting on just the idea of a universe that is made of this things.

Regards.

I would say being in the present moment letting go of clinging is a kind of nibbana, because the mind is experiencing a momentary "blowing out" of clinging. Still its not the same as the nibbana experienced in one of the 4 stages of awakening, or the nibbana experienced by an arahant.
