    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...

    Some people think I'm odd cuz I'd

    rather stay up all night. As a mother of three this doesn't always make mornings easy.But when it's late at night and I go out to the barn to do chores, I get so much energy. It's like the only time during the day I really feel alive. I wish people my family understood that...

    I grew up by a giant lake.

    . every day to go to town I had to cross a large bridge and back. My favorite memory of the night sky happened on that bridge. The moon was at its peak, a harvest moon but the largest one I had ever seen, and it reflected the soft orange light across the dark water. It seemed to...

    When the day has been long

    and stressful.....when the mind id too full, going too much....I pull a warm blanket, and a cozy chair and wrap my self up and look to the night sky, and let my mind just go away for that moment...looking at the bright stars, breathe in that cold air, let it fill your lungs...

    I enjoy looking out my window staring at the

    sky. It's better then being outside. In this dangerous world.

    Although I prefer day time,

    and it can be scary when night hits, it can be quite wonderful looking up at a dark sky full of countless numbers of stars above. (:

    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.

    oh watching the thunderstorm moving across the

    night sky. full of power and electricity. oh it moves silently until it BOOMS. ready to fulfill its duty to infuse the world with life and excitement. wish I didn't have to watch this beautiful demonstration of power alone.

    the sky erupted in fireworks last night

    as the sun began its descent into the horizon. Yellow turned to fiery red to pinks and purples and blues before the dark canvas of night showed off the stars and the trajectory of the moon. We are privy to nature's art and beauty.

    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 :)

    I can see us there, your arms around me.

    Your beautiful face illuminated by the glow of soft moonlight. You put your hand on my cheek, u lean in and kiss me softly. you lay me down into the soft grass our bodies merge as one under a blanket full of stars.

    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...

    As I lay on my roof, pondering about all things

    terrible, and I did not take the time to really admire how the sky looked. I felt almost terrible for not noticing how beautiful it really is. I think looking up once in a while is very nice and I should do it more often.

    I got glasses recently,

    though I should have gotten them years ago. Being nearsighted, I hadn't realized that the stars aren't supposed to be blurry, so I had my first clear view of the night sky in forever and it was super awesome

    I live on a small Scottish island

    so the sky is usually clear at night. My house has a flat roof and when it's not too cold in a starry night I love to climb up on to the roof and lie down and just take in the magical view. When looking at the stars, I think about how big the world is and how there are so many...

    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.(:

    Seeing a clear night of stars in secluded area

    is a privilege. It humbles me with all the light having traveled unfathomable distances. At the same time I am overwhelmed with how big God is.

    and looking up at the stars. Someday, I want to move out west where there's less light pollution, that way my midnight walks can be even more spectacular with the milky way overhead

    One of my favorite memories is swimming at

    night in the pool, relaxing, and gazing at the stars. I would turn all the lights off in the house so I could see the stars better.
