    I Am Facinated By The Sky....

    On a clear night, I love to just star gaze.... I don't do drugs, but it is almost trippy when I look out at the night sky. . . I just imagine the vast amount of space, planets, stars, moons, etc.. I see us as such a small little spec (spec on a flower i guess! like on horton...

    Thank You, Lord

    It doesn't matter the time of day, be it morning, noon or night, but whenever I am outside my eyes are always drawn towards Heaven. Seeing God's fingerprints move across the sky makes my heart gasp and I am so thankful for His artwork. I see it everywhere I look. His beauty...

    Astrology and Astronomy Aside

    Forgetting the scientific aspects of star gazing, the night sky is amazing and lets me think how insignificant we are as individuals, as the stars are however combine the masses and things become huge. The night sky can bring us closer. Next time you are talking long distance on...

    It Inspires Me With Infinite Awe And Wonder

    I have always loved studying the cosmos with telescopes. The stars as they appear to our eyes.  The Eta carina is a massive star that contains 100 times the mass of the Sun and shines very brightly in it's own right. Then there are the nebulai and how they are star producing...

    A Night Sky

    I love looking at the night sky, I fell so tiny. I fell as if I alone in this universe. Sometimes I miss looking at the night sky just like I was a child since I move to a city and it's difficult to find a right place to see a wide night sky.

    The Universe

    Living in Alaska is not without it's perks. To be able to look out my window and see the night sky just leaves me in awe. To be able to take a short 15 minute drive and go for a hike, look up into the sky and see nothing but stars can be over whelming. Cold nights in winter, a...

    Think about ancient cultures around the world.

    They all had a connection with the stars and astronomy. Take the native Americans for example, the "sky people" were a part of daily ritual for tribes all the way from Peru to Quebec. Things like the rain dance, to light a fire and gather around during night to communicate with...

    Halloween Orange

     I had a dream that I was outside amazed at the sky. The stars were so very beautiful in my dream and I was simply enraptured. Lately the weather has been so bad that I haven't been able to see any stars for weeks it seems...so to make up for all that my subconcious gave...

    Ooooooo!

    Especially when I see multiple tornadoes, which I have done! But besides that, I am a sky junkie.  Fair weather or foul, day or night, the sky is an ever-fascinating theater, in High-Definition, and with Surround Sound!

    While I Was Driving To Work This Morning...

    I love the midwest/ western sky. I wake about between 5:30 and 6:00 to the am.. it's still dark other than the sun trying to creep in tiny spaces in the closed curtains and the dimmed, orange, pointed bulbs that resemble a flame inside medievil light fixtures on the walls of our...

    Clouds & Stars

    In the daytime, I might be found laying on the grass staring up at the clouds. Yes I am looking for shapes, watching them move and change. If there are storm clouds, it is fascinating to watch them gather, darken, and know that a rain storm is brewing. Sometimes there are no...

    This morning I looked up at the sky and felt amazed by what I saw. Here's a story I wrote while I was at school today: Beneath The Hollows The mist rolled in slowly, shrouding everything in a silver-grey blanket. The sky above clouded, making the time of day unknown. Through...

    I am a big time sky watcher.

    Mostly because I just might spot a UFO. Still haven't seen one. I do enjoy the "Cloud or Chemtrail" game. Yesterday was a doozy. Lots of weirdness in the sky.

    I don't think we look too much at what's above

    us. Well we look but we glance not purposefully looking. It is only until we look we realise it's beauty. We know what's above us but we fail to appreciate it, we think it's always the same. It makes me smile when i see how beautiful it is, to take it in, to see what is there...

    Beautiful Sky

    I do feel amazed.  Everytime I look up at the vast, endless blue, watch the clouds roll in, see torrents of rain falling, or watch the snowflakes quietly leave their cloud home, and fall quietly to earth.  It can be peaceful, or angry.  It goes on forever, and is...

    Recently, I was star gazing

    and I was looking at the stars in some of our major constellations (i.e. Orion, Ursa Major/Minir Cassiopeia) and noticed something strange. The stars appeared to be moving. So after about a week of studying, I stumbled upon a video that was taken a while back of some of those...

    Small

    Staring at the sky makes me feel small and insignificant. When you open your mind to the fact you are a small speck in the eyes of the world. It's an odd feeling, not unpleasant I don't think.
