I Adore the Night Time Sky

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,900 People

    Over the years I have worked lots of overnight

    shifts. This has given me ample opportunity to "stargaze" and has instilled an almost awe-like reverence for the nighttime sky. And doesn't it just put you in your place too? Reminds you how infinitesimally small we all are? Strange how looking "up" can keep you "grounded"...

    To look up into the breathtakingly beautiful

    star filled sky really puts life into perspective. My love affair with the moon, my kinship with the stars, they keep me centered and grounded. The night sky helps to keep my ego in check. I am a child of the Universe, no more, or less important than anyone or anything...

    Before my Dad moved out of his house,

    he had a garden. At night, usually at a late time, around 12/1am we would stay up and sit on the bench that we had in our back garden. We'd talk about the stars & what sort of stories they had as well as making up a few of our own. It's saddening how we can't do this anymore as...

    It's endless. Literally endless,

    actually. It makes me feel like I could fall up into it, and it's beautiful.

    Reminds me of one of the best memories I've had

    with my boyfriend/airman. Laying in a forest, on a blanket with him, looking at the stars. (he loves space and I love hearing him talk about it)

    We were walking back to the hotel in the middle

    of the night, our friends were way ahead of us, so it was just us together. Even though the night was chilly, we were taking our time, just enjoying each other's company when he stopped and said "look up at the buildings all lit up in the sky, isn't that cool?" Then he looked...

    I Watch The Moon These Days

    I remember reading a book about constellations in childhood. It was my favourite book back then. It had all those greek mythological stories about the constellations and their names and how to recognize them. I'd often take the book along and climb onto the roof and spend hours...

    Night time is amazing with the stars out

    and the fireflies. Especially if it's a summer night and your just laying on the grass and enjoying the view and only the view

    I miss lying under the stars

    and gazing up in wonder. I need to get out somewhere away from all the lights. I can hardly see the stars even "way out" in suburbia. My favorite constellations are Orion (the warrior) and the Big Dipper (ursa major).

    I love sitting outside,

    late at night just staring up at the sky... no matter how alone I feel... I know there's someone else looking at the same moon... same stars as I am... and then I don't feel so lonely.

    I absolutely love being out in the bush,

    well away from city lights and being able to lay on my back watching the stars. It really puts the trivial issues in life back into perspective :)

    The stars shines and every time

    when I look up In the night sky thinking about life. Every time when I look up I see the pain in the past. Every time I look up I would always see a star that doesn't shine as bright as the other stars. But with out the little star there won't be a night sky.

    I place my blanket on the ground

    and the night covers me. I marvel at the brightness all around up above. I feel very small among all the twinkling lights. I whisper my prayer and drift off sound asleep.

    A few years back I went on daily outings during

    the nighttime alone. I often went out to dark places with nothing but the light of the moon and stars to guide me. It really is amazing how many stars there are in the night sky and how they change every night.

    I love being out at night.

    I love how everything is peaceful & its as if time has stopped. From going on a night jog to just out driving to no where. I love how in secluded areas, youre under a huge blanket of stars. You wont ever feel more comfortable.(:

    Back in my country they have rickshaws.

    My cousin took me on one outside during the summer I visited just to feel the breeze since it was a hot day. It was like a road trip but as I sat in the seat the cool fresh air brushed my face and blew my hair backwards softly. It felt great since the heat of the sun was over...

    I live near the mountains

    and love the amazing stars that splash across the nighttime sky. It only takes a short drive to get away from the city lights to see it all. It's absolutely breathtaking. I'm an outdoorsy kind of guy, so I take advantage of it as often as possible.

    I like the night time sky

    because it's just really beautiful to see the sky change from one shade of blue to the next. Then with the city lights glowing with the moon and stars everything is just so calming :)

    When I moved out to the country

    when I was little, It was amazing how dark it was, how quiet, stars everywhere. I hope one day I will have my dream house, and enjoy the stars again.

    Looking at the sky at night,

    the stars, as countless people in the ancient days have done, and down the centuries and millennia since, is a renewing pastime to pursue. Connecting with my forebears in this way is both adoring and grounding. To lie on the earth and espy the constellations is very interesting...
