    The moon is 400 times smaller

    than the sun and the sun is 400 times further from earth than the moon. So from earth the moon covers the sun perfectly in a solar eclipse.

    It's intriguing how big the space is with

    countless galaxies and billions of universes been found already. Is there no end to it ? Will we ever reach that far to know?

    I have a weird thinking of the universe,

    but one that I love. I see the universe as a melding of both good and evil, in all its forms. And something can be both, as how water can both give life and take it. I see God in all, in the rush of water, in music, in fire, in passion, in beauty, in the simple pleasure of...

    night and wondering what is up there. The shear scale and mystery of space is very compelling.

    Light travels at about 186,

    000 miles per second. Our galaxy is about 100,000 light years across. Yet our galaxy is tiny in comparison to others that have been discovered and there are millions. It makes me wonder... I wish I could travel to other parts of the universe and discover intelligent life!

    If we are made from atoms

    which make up the universe, and we are in the universe, then that means we are inseparable from the universe. We ARE the universe!!! In an experience saying how amazed we are at..ourselves? Geez the universe is so arrogant. No offence.

    The word "epic" simply doesn't do it justice.

    There may not be a word to describe what goes on in our universe. Despite all that we have discovered, I believe we haven't even scratched the surface.
