I Like to Lie Outside and Watch the Stars

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 16,592 People

    Venus and Jupiter are

    so lucid at the moment - I feel like I could reach right out and touch them. It takes my breath away, the beauty of our universe. "Though my soul may set in darkness, It will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly To be fearful of the night."

    I like to so much that I have Glow-in-the-Dark

    stars all over my bed area. I like to look at them all the time. But I love to go outside and lay down in the grass and just star gaze. It's so mystifying and breathtakingly beautiful. The night sky always has me in awe.

    God's Angels

    When I was a child, I was taught that the stars represented God's angels who always looked out for us.  We didn't see them in the day time because of the sun but that they were still there watching over us.  When my mother died even though her body went into the ground, her...

    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 would love to be able to just sit out on my

    roof all night long and watch the stars. Along with being behind a camera, stargazing is one of my favorite things to do. When I start to think about everything that is out there, or even possibly out there, it makes me realize just how insignificant I really am. And at the same...

    I often find myself laying in grass,

    sand, or soil, gazing up at the infinite wonders of the universe. In these moments the chaotic nature of life slips away as I absorb myself in the distant beauty of the night sky. I have done this since I was a child, and now as an adult it has become its own ritual. Sometimes...

    I think it's beautiful.

    I hate that I can't see the stars sometimes because of light pollution and clouds. I could lie for hours watching the stars.

    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 love to lie outside on the ground

    and watch the stars and moon. I am always fascinated by how much detail God put into creating all of the universes. It brings me peace. It brings me comfort. It takes me back to a happier less complicated time. Also, it brings back precious memories of my mama.

    So open your eyes and see.

    The way our horizons meet. And all of the lights will lead. Into the night with me. And I know these scars will bleed but both of our hearts believe. All of these stars will guide us. Home.

    Looking up at the night sky makes me feel

    so small but it also makes my worries disappear. I know when I look up there and think about how large and amazing the universe is, I lose my problems to the stars. It makes me feel like everything is going to be okay. Even if I were to lose everything I own or worked for, I...

    I used to sleep on the roof under the sky in

    summers. Some nights I'd watch the stars for hours. Until I didn't know if I was asleep or awake. The stars would change their places, move around, dance and make wonderful shapes and patterns. Sometimes I'd fly with them and go to the moon. Wonderful dreams of a child I know...

    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...

    I was sitting here at my computer,

    getting some late night work done, and I happened to glance up just as a shooting star shot across the sky. It was so bright! It made me smile...thought I'd share.

    I love doing this. Layed down

    and just looked up, see the stars. This was always so calming and peaceful. I would do so in my front yard. I layed next to my mother, it was great. Felt so close to her. We would look at the stars for hours. Unfortunately where I am now, I can't lay in my front yard...

    and staring up at the stars they are so beautiful and bright. Sometimes I wish I could leave the earth and for up to the stars and live there. But that makes no since it's not even possible. But it would be so amazing!

    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 :)
