    In the southwestern deserts,

    the stars are so bright, it's almost as if you could reach out and touch them.

    Damn Light Pollution!

    Even in Upstate NY it's now become difficult to see the stars - I am ready for a massive power outage!

    I went for a Geography excursion last year to a

    forested area and the sky there was so clear. I stood outside my room at night and watched the stars. I spotted constellations. It was just brilliant and it made me so happy. Too bad we don't have experiences like that in the city.

    Turn Away.

    Turn your backs on me? Should that make me forget every one of you Or will it make the pain grow? Stab me with your cold words. Hunt me and shoot me like a bird. I stand here, I'm still standing. Turn your backs on me? Your words once made me smile Your cold hands once made my...

    I like how all those little dots are sometimes

    bigger than our own damn sun... How they are millions of Lightyears away but yet so close... I wish that my city wasn't so bright though...

    I do sometimes think "is there somebody

    somewhere out there doing the same thing" and then I smile.

    I used to climb up the emergency exit ladder of

    a 3-storied building in order to go up the roof and watch the stars at night. Just looking at them twinkling... sparkling... something inside me is soothed. No matter what kind of day I had, I'd feel peaceful. I no longer get to do this; but when I'm out at night, and the sky is...

    I feel so small, like nothing in the world is

    that big of deal. There is a bigger world out there. I've always wanted to lay in the back of a truck or in a blowup pool with tons of blankets and pillows....bucket list

    It's scary but very beautiful at the same time.

    Always reminds of how small I am compared to the universe.

    I love relaxing and looking into the night sky

    realizing that the little points of light I'm looking at are many light years away from earth. I wonder what life may be like out in deep space. Here I am warm and comfortable and what science tells us is it's cold dark and a very hostile environment out there. I think do we...

    --reminiscing-- 5yrs ago,

    whenever i was visiting my friend with other friends, we'd go next door to the abandoned house and climb to the roof from its second floor balcony. we'd sit there and just watch the night sky and talk. even when the air was cold some nights. one time we lost track of time and it...

    When I'm under the stars it's just an amazing

    feeling. Staring up and watching them twinkle. I could do it every night. Just taking in the view. Letting my mind wander about where the stars are, imagining what it could be like on different worlds. The starry sky excites my imagination

    It's so peaceful. Especially

    when you're away from the city with that special someone or with some close friends.

    Complicated

    Complicated is not what I choose to be, it is a series of experiences that have impacted me. Curiosity is something I sought to heal so many open places inside that others cannot easily see. My own perceptions faulty and lacking have impacted my progression, thus causing me to...

    My boyfriend invited me over

    for the night a few weeks ago. We smoked, had a few beers, enjoyed the fire and watched the stars shine. We talked about how it would be INSANE if the sky was really just an illusion, and we were just a C-grade project in a jar sitting on an alien kid's shelf. Ever thought of...

    In my opinion there is nothing more fulfilling

    than gazing at the Night Sky. I'm a passionate hobby author, and there is nothing more inspiring to me than darkness and stars. And yes, I'm a nyctophiliac. My favorite song is Chvrches - 'Night Sky'.
