    Just How Many Planets Are There?

    I was listening to Astronomycast news this morning. Of the many things they discussed was the fact that the science behind finding exoplanets is getting better almost daily. I remember when we first discovered a planet orbiting around another star. It was such a big deal. Now we...

    I live in a small overcrowded city

    where you can't really see stars. I also don't live very high up so the only star I really see is the northern star (?). One day I would really want to see not just stars, but full constellations. And edges of the Milky Way. I think it's so beautiful and magnificent, truly a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love stars. I don't know why

    but I always look at them and already feel better. I feel like they are the souls of people who lost their lives, shining bright so we can be reminded of them.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

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

    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.
