    Every time I get a bad headache

    and can't stand being inside, I go out at night and lay on the back of my moms car. And I just look up at the stars and think.

    If Only I Could See Them...

    I am not sure when it happened, but 3 years ago I was at an out door movie with my family and friends. After it was over I saw everyone looking up and talking about the stars. I looked up but I saw nothing. I could see the moon and one bright light and that was it. I leaned...

    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 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...

    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!

    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.

    I'd love to go outside and look up at the stars, but they're not visible where I am. I have the next best thing on my bedroom ceiling, though. Glow in the dark plastic stars. (: ⭐

    Space Reminds Me Of Something Inside Of Myself

    So Much

    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...

    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.

    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...
