    Always Wonderful To Sit Out And Look At The Stars

    I especially enjoy beautiful weather on a clear starry night. I love going out and taking long exposures of the night sky and photos of the moon.

    Against the dark and soothing night,

    That tries its best to hide and smite, The twinkle of the stars that may, Take a wish and save the day, As the world stands in a daze, Covered in a glowing haze, The star lit sky begins to fight, Piercing through the sun at night, And as the light reaches its goal, Grasping at...

    My truck's engine comes to a stop

    as I turn the keys & take them out. I open my door & step out into darkness. I look at my inviting home. Porch lights on & my little family inside waiting for me. Dare I look up tonight? I do. How glorious. How enchanting. I caught not one cloud hovering in the night sky. little...

    It was beautiful tonight! I loved looking at Orion the hunter. I could see the stars so clearly in such a long time. I feel so calm and like nothing is truly going to stay the same and know there is always a small speck of hope. Funny how looking at stars always leads to...

    It isn't exaggerating to say

    that an experience like this is pure bliss. Gazing at those heavenly bodies and wondering how small we are in a massive universe. Not to forget the romantic feelings xD haha

    into the starry night sky and a nice cool summer breeze blowing.

    I am always amazed by the night sky

    when I visit my mother who lives in the middle of nowhere. So dark and clear you can see everything. It is just so special to see the cosmos.

    The absolute clearest night I've ever seen was

    when I was 17 and on a trip to Kenya. I was in Mombasa on the beach. Very little ambient light. I looked up and it seemed like I could see everything. There were no clouds, just stars. I've only seen anything like it when I've been to planetariums. I laid in the sand and...

    Out here where I live there no light from any

    cities or towns. The stars here at night almost seem like you reach out and touch them. The Milky Way is just a brilliant jumble of colours that is plain and simply breath taking.

    Perseid Meteorite Shower

    My birthday is August fourth. Lying on the deck with my husband, hands clasped. Gasps and sighs at the amazing sky extravaganza. What a beautiful and breathtaking birthday present.

    I admire a clear starry night mainly

    because I live in a country where we have allot of clouds, then on clear nights usually we can't see the stars. It's frustrating when I think about it but on the nights where it really does clear up, can't help but admire the night sky and as usual.. ask "anybody up there...

    Many times, I've laid in the grass

    and looked up at the revolving curtains of the Aurora Borealis, but my favorite view of the night sky was one night on a dark lake far, far from any roadway.  There really were no lights for miles around.  The sounds were of the loons and frogs - a silence that wasn't...

    I remember one time I went out in the country

    with my dad's friend Marcus and I was with my brother. It was amazing, we did a small bush walk and came to this huge clearing and looked up and there were millions of stars just everywhere! I even got to see my second shooting star. I can't remember what I wished for but I...

    I grew up in a moderate sized city

    where you could see just enough of the night sky to have certain nights that looked just a little more impressive than others, depending on whether you were near the highway or out among the farms. I thought I'd seen some pretty clear nights until several years ago, some...

    When I'm staring up at those tiny glowing

    specks up above me, surrounded by the wonderfully beautiful night sky, I can forget (for the time being) all about my worries, problems, everything. It's just me and the Universe in that moment.

    Last summer, my family

    and I went on vacation to Lake Michigan. One night when we were just hanging out on the beach, we saw the northern lights and a ton of shooting stars. Best night ever!!

    Laying outside, in the middle of the night

    while looking up at the starry sky is one of my favorite things to do. It's such a simple and easy thing to do, and such a magnificent and wondrous sight to gaze upon! The night sky is so beautiful, an amazing element of God's work of art!

    I love it, I always look at the sky

    when I am walking back home from work ( I work late in the evening). It would be better without light pollution.
