I Love To Look Up At The Stars

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,525 People

    It reminds me that I am small,

    that our troubles and experiences are small. I see that in the grand scheme of things this is all temporary and there is so much more than what is happening right now. When I look up at the stars I am in awe of all the things that led to the moment I am in, all the factors that...

    I tried to explain to my friends

    that the Ursa Major has more 'connections' than the "Big Dipper" (cooking pot). Ehh.. They don't really care anyway. Yahoo for the constellation geeks!!!

    I love the night sky,

    more so when is a very clear night, you can see the stars twinkling, shinning like little jewels. It takes me back to when I was a child, my grandmother said to me that's all the angels in heaven watching over us. Sadly my Grandmother is no longer with us and from time to...

    My kids are already excited

    and can't wait till it's 20. March. We will watch the partial solar eclipse in an astronomical observatory. I hope, no clouds will bother us! :)

    I can never pick out constellations other

    than the big and little dipper even if I've got a diagram in front of me. I wonder at how someone looked up and saw this, had the clarity of mind to see pictures among the dots and track their movements across the sky. Mankind would have been lost if it depended on my kind. The...

    I look up at the stars

    and imagine how many other solar systems in our galaxy have a planet like ours that sustains life as we know it. Then I wonder how many galaxies are out there and how many solar systems are in those galaxies that have planets like ours. How far does the rabbit hole go? The. I...

    I grew up near the Joshua Tree National

    Monument...a beautiful place with almost no light pollution...and the stars there...the stars...they are absolutely stunning...if I close my eyes I can always see them glittering and shimmering against the black carpet of sky.

    Quite simply order in chaos.

    The heavens are a reassurance that there are constants in life. When you need it, just find a dark place and look up!

    Orion's Belt

    Since I was little the only thing I could ever finding he sky was Orion's Belt. The North Star was invisible to me and the Big Dipper was impossible. But Orion's Belt shown out brightly to me each winter. It's fun to look at the stars. It makes the world seem bugger more...

    Space Reminds Me Of Something Inside Of Myself

    As of this last couple years I really started noticing the stars and deep space. The other night I laid in bed and stared up at the night sky. I wish I could be in space. Not flying or doing anything cool, just standing completely alone as the cold darkness covers my body. I...

    In his very late years,

    my father began to study the stars. It was one of the less things we did together without looking at the past. Just have fun as father and daughter. I do it now with my son and really enjoy it.

    "maybe stars arent balls of fire,

    maybe they are holes in heaven so our angels can look down on us" but either way, they are extremely beautiful, and breathtaking.

    Looking up into the stars

    and knowing the infinite multiverse is everywhere. It fortifies my reasons why I don't believe in the rules of society.

    I don't mean celebrities either.

    (no shade) But I mean REALLY looking up at the stars. Gazing into the vast expanse of space and time dotted with shimmers and glimmers and all things divine! You won't find a view like this amid the hustle and bustle of the big city. From what I've seen of one big city, that...

    I used to know more on the constellations,

    but here in Paris there I'd lots of light pollution stopping you seeing them, really. In the hills above Nice you can ramble and look up at the stars.

    I love looking up at the stars.

    It's really beautiful. It makes me feel relax and opens my mind to all the possibilities in the world. When I grow up and get my own place, I'll make sure to have a huge window to look out at the stars or have a backyard to lay in the grass and lay there for as long as I want to...

    mountain and just stare all night at the stars. So many different things pass through your mind, if there's someone else doing the same thing as i am, is there anyone up there looking at me, is there life in another planet, could a star fall, could i catch it, could i keep it...

    So Much
