    When I Get The Chance, Which Is Rare

    Living in the Los Angeles Southbay area, it gets difficult (for Me at least) to find time to drive far enough out of the area where the electric lights don't get in the way of seeing starlight as brightly and clearly as possible. It's been several years since I've been in a...

    Best Night Sky View Ever

    It is 3 am PST and I just woke up from a brief nap in the 10 pm flight to Manila from LAX. I was 40,000 ft high in the air, somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and I looked out the window and there it was, the beautiful clear night sky. The view was better than any view...

    Star Gazing..

    I swear this was a group I made a while back... Anyway, I find the night sky exhilarating to gaze at and wish I lived where there were thousands of noticeable stars each night. I don't think I could get bored and enjoy letting my mind wonder while looking up at the stars and...

    If I have had a crappy day at work, I'll usually drive out of town (which really isn't far at all) and just sit in a feild and stare at the stars. It's the most relaxing thing in the world.

    My brother and I used to go to an open field at

    night to star gaze. Surrounded by some trees. We would find treasures and pieces of things there sometimes. It looked like the perfect place for a meteor to crash.

    My Favorite Place To Stargaze

    My favorite stargazing spot is in Hawaii. (Sorry, everybody who lives thousands of miles from Hawaii.) It's on the Big Island. (Sorry, everybody who lives on Maui, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, Kauai or Niihau!) It's on Mauna Kea - but it's not at the top!  The air at the top is...

    So Peaceful...

    There's nothing like laying outside & watching the night sky.  It's so beautiful & peaceful.  It puts everything into perspective for me.  It makes all of my troubles seem so small & trivial.  I am just one person in this vast universe.  It...

    My favorite site

    Last night, the sky was clear, 40 degree, not too cold. It was a perfect time to go outside and watch the night sky. I decided to pack my telescope, a blanket, a bag of cookies, and I went to this church parking lot, on top of the hill, at the edge of town. People around me...

    The Most Calming Thing

    I often think of star gazing as a form of meditation. I'm not the kind of person that can easily sit still without some form of entertainment, be that music or something more interactive. But I do love to just sit, or lie, and stare up at the sky at night. There's nothing more...

    It was a long walk up the mountain in

    pitch-black darkness. Occasionally stumbling over rocks, luckily we didn't fall. Jokes were made about Slenderman being there, the trees certainly mimicked the shape. There we all were, at the same moment and place on top of this mountain. You could hear the static of the...
