    Question Adorn or Adorned

    That evening Nikki lay next to Tobus watching the sparkling diamonds regally adorn the night sky.

    Should I use "adorn" or "adorned" on the above sentence?
    Please free feel to drop any suggestion. Thanks.

    'Adorn'.

    'Watch me shoot that pheasant'.

    Or, 'watch the night sky adorned with sparkling diamonds', where the phrase is an adjective modifying 'sky'.
