    Why do the stars look like home to me?

    When I'm down or have trouble sleeping at night I gaze at the night sky and instantly I feel at peace. It's like they're telling me to hang in there. I know I will go back to where I belong.

    The Little Prince

    There is a special relationship in this book between the characters and the stars.  This is one of my favorite passages: "All men have the stars," he answered, "but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are...

    This weekend, I laid down on the sand

    and looked up into the clear, evening sky. As I lay alone, I seen the place where we all go in our next life... The stars were infinite, so bright and full of life. So much mystery lay within the dark summer sky, yet it was so beautiful to experience.

    Wish

    When I was little and still now, I wish on the first star I see.  I don't know why but I love to do this.  I also love to lie on my back and watch the stars.

    Always Breath Taking.

      While I was growing up in Indiana I used to spend hours outside at night looking at the stars.  Later on I traveled to Iceland and was able to see the Northern Lights for the first time and it was amazing.  I am now working out in Saudi Arabia and a friend...

    Fascinating Little Balls of Light

    I've always loved looking at stars. When I was a little kid I liked how they looked. At the time I didn't know much about stars, but it was always a cool thing to look up and see in the sky. I was about 6 or so when I learned that they were giant balls of gases and metals or what...

    I remember one night, when we had some down time, just potting the night vision goggles and looking up. My God what a sight. 10,000 times as many stars as you can see with the naked eye. It was so beautiful and tranquil. And you expect me to believe that there is no life...

    I just love looking at stars!

    But it always gives me two completely different feelings - admiration and fear. I admire all those stars because i just find it unbelievable how many other planets are there around us. But then i get sared.. I realize how small and fragile we actually are.. I even start to panic...

    Perspective

    Looking at the stars, for me, makes a lot of different thoughts pass through my mind. Looking at the stars, you're looking into the past. For all we know, some of the stars we're seeing died a long time ago. It's a fascinating concept, to think all you have to do is look at the...

    I Want to See Them Again

    Last time I saw a raw night sky (no city lights, no nothing, just me in a small country house in the middle of a forest) was when I was 10 years old. I remember being so so stunned when I looked up at the window.  I had never seen what a full sky of stars looked like and...

    Sonoma

    Looking up one perfect night on a hill in Sonoma, I remember seeing all the stars squirming around in the sky like countless spermatozoa, each trying to be the one to fertilize the moon.

    Light

    It amazes me that some points of light in the night sky left their respective worlds hundreds of years ago and travelling at the speed of light are seen as we look at them in the fifteen, sixteenth century or even further back in time.

    I love clear nights when I can look at the sky, see millions of stars, and feel like I am gazing at all of eternity- Like what's above me is forever. It's comforting to think that no matter where I am or what I am doing those stars are above me. The one constant beauty in my...

    Simply

    As when I feel that I am isolated and so far away.  I look up and realise how small this world is after all.  How we all share the same sky, and look at the same stars and moon. As when my mind becomes flooded with words and thoughts.  I can go and stand...

    I really do love stars.

    They are my favourite sight to see. And when I look at them I always feel like I am gaining strength from them. I could stare up at their beauty and wonder for endless hours on end. I would say they seem pretty magical to me. <3

    Our "star"

    At this camp I go to, I was on a hay ride with the guy I like. We were star gazing and we both noticed a yellowy-bright star. It's actually Venus, but I call it our star because every time I see it glittering and shining in the sky, I think of him. Oh, and well, it does look like...
