    The universe is amazing.

    I love just laying outside and watching the stars. I've always been fascinated with the way the universe works, and how small we are. We are each just a person, ONE small person on this huge planet of 7 billion of us, and we all live and have all been born on this one planet in...

    I enjoy the drive up to Fremonts Peak,

    lying in the back of my friends truck and taking in the view of the night sky. It's an amazing sight.

    Break Out From Artificial Light And Embrace The Universe And The Firament

    If you are city folk please find the time to escape and find a place where our world, the one that hosts our existence, is free of all artificial light. Get cosy with family or friends and lay back for the greatest show off Earth. When an unencumbered Universe becomes your...

    I need to find someone

    who loves watching the stars as much as I do. Some how I get deep in thought when I'm lying there looking at the stars. I get the reason of life until I get up and forget everything I just thought about.

    Thank Goodness For Apps

    I downloaded a very useful app, for those who love looking at the stars as much as I do...Google Skymap. Simply raise your phone to whichever part of the sky you wish to view, and instantly it identifies the constellations you're gazing upon.

    Sparkly Dots :)

    I love to lay down in the field of my grandpa's place. I like to be alone and stare up at the sky like I can't do that in the city where I live. I love to feel free thinking and clearing my thoughts. No body never comes with me and look at the stars with me. It's just what I like...

    I used to live in a house

    where part of the roof was flat so it was easy to climb on :) I would go up there every night and just lay there and watch the stars. :) Sometimes i go out to places far from the city to watch them X) The stars never cease to amaze me :)

    There is something about seeing a complete

    enormous canvas of stars to put some things into perspective or take away the weight of the world. With all its beauty and mystery, I think that we all could do with taking that little bit of time out of our evening just to stop and realise that we are only a small part of...

    In Utah I would go sneak out my tent

    and find a great place to lie down. I would lay on the green grass and watch the stars. Their was a lot of them at night. I remember sitting their feeling peaceful and happy. Feeling like life wasn't supposed to be wasted on because you only have one of it. I would count the...

    I would love to lie down

    and look at the stars. I did it once before and it was relaxing. Unfortunately, I live in a city so this is one of those things you can't really do in a congested area.

    I hate cities because of the light pollution

    distorting the skies. I grew up under a completely rural sky which was always so dark that you could see the edges of the milky way. Anything but that seems to make me feel distant from them.

    Star gazing is one of

    if not my favorite hobby! I wish astronomers made much money cause I would look all day. The beauty of looking at the night sky and questioning everything! The endless possibilities. I can't wait for summer so I can go out and lay out without freezing.

    I sit there and ponder how far some stars are?

    How big the universe is? What's our role? Are we that important when there are zillions of other plants and some may have life? Are we the only intelligent life? Is there life after death? Really? I just go into deep thoughts... I

    Because They Could See It Almost Any Night, Perhaps They Never Will......

    One summer night, out on a flat headland, all but surrounded by the waters of the bay, the horizons were remote and distant rims on the edge of space. Millions of stars blazed in darkness, and on the far shore a few lights burned in cottages. Otherwise there was no reminder of...

    Driving home with my daughter (in Illinois)

    late in the afternoon on Dec 26, we were incredibly lucky to see a falling meteor. It was an amazing green color with a yellow/white tail and it was pulsating. It only lasted 10 seconds or less, but it was incredibly bright against the dark sky. I first thought it was a crashing...

    My fiance and I have a thing about stars. Star gazing together is a special time we enjoy every night when he is home. As he is in the army it is a special thing with us that no matter where he is, we are both staring @ the same sky. So stars will always be an important part...

    and I would sleep out on our trampoline in the summer. The stars were always prettier on those nights. When I got older into high school I always suggested it to my friends and now it's kind of like a traditional summer thing. Stars are just make you think ya know?

    With all the stresses

    that come with being young and in college, looking up at the moon and stars puts me at ease. It's just so relaxing, there's nothing like it. It's also a reminder of how vast the universe really is, and how incredibly tiny we are compared to it.
