Can someone explain why the sky above Earth is black in high altitude footage?
Is it because low density air?

Density within the air column produces the optical effect called Light; without density (above 25 miles) there is no Light.

Therefore, would it be correct to say stars and starlight are below 25 miles?

Based on my observations, nothing is below the Sun and Moon at about 32,000 miles above Sea_Level; with the Stars being progressively higher and the Pole Star (Polaris means pole star) at the Top.

Q. Then how do we see the Sun, Moon, Stars and wondering Stars?
  A. We are not above the 25 mile limit.  Note, these Helium filled research Balloons rise to about 23 miles, with Hydrogen reaching the highest Altitude.

Q. If we were above the 25 mile limit could we see Light?
  A. The correct answer would be no, we can not see Light; however, the Sun, Moon and Stars look to be diffused light; meaning, "created" with multiple lenses like the Moon shows us during the Eclipse.
