    A buddy always tells me how he looks at the

    stars at night. I tried it once, and decided to do it more often. You should try it too.

    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...

    I spiralled into a deep depression.

    I hated my myself, I hated the world. I cried every day, about society, the way things are, the way people are, how harsh we can be, how heartless, douche bags always win, being skinny and pretty is everything. I hated this place. My anxiety got so bad.. constant panic attacks...

    Makes you feel so insignificant.

    Staring at it and wondering how much is your education, your career, even your skills....how much are they truly worth? Looking at the vast sky reminds me that in terms of importance, we can say that our society is nothing but one big game of pretend.

    Few days ago there was an overload on one of

    the power substations and large part of the city went dark. Wish it stayed that way. The urban area never saw more stars. Wish there were more places untouched by the lights to see the sky in it´s whole glory.

    Anyone living somewhere in the Northern

    A clear cloudless day-time sky is blue

    because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light. When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colours because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight.

    I love the sky so much

    but today I noticed that there are so many funking chemtrails. there's no way in lump that those are just jet streams. we were out there for over an hour and they were like that the whole time and stretch across the sky.

    Once I got on a road trip around California

    and I stopped to rest. it was night time. It was the desert part so it was super dark. the sky looked amazing. There was not a blank space that I could find without stars. I was amazed for how many stars were in the sky that I never noticed.

    As a young child, I experienced the 'Overview

    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...

    All of my emotions, thoughts,

    feelings, start to just flow through my veins as a warm sensation. So filled with awe, my body wants to move, jump, run, do something with this energy, inspiration. I stood up, held out my arms, open to the sky, and just breathed in the stars. The moon glowed in my eyes and the...

    Its has always been my most fervent wish

    as a child and even now, that I could fly in that vast sky. Skim and skip across clouds, chase the wind, and always feel the purest of freedoms.

    Moonset

    I always look at the sky

    and feel so amazed. The sky painters, as i call them, make every moment magical. I've found just watching the sky is the most magical best free show ever, changing and morphing from minute to minute. They say the best things in life are free, for me this is one of them. And...

    An Old Habit

    Since I was a kid I've always enjoyed watching the sky, it's different moods and colours. Whenever I travel I take photos of the sky, it looks different depending on which part of the world I am in. I love big billowing clouds, pink sunsets, crisp starry nights. We spend so much...

    the beautiful colors

    as the night slowly envelopes the day. like a living painting that even the best artist can't duplicate. purples, pinks, and golds.

    The sky, the moon, the stars they just make me

    feel so complete & whole. Like I'm not lost in this crazy thing called life, I feel as if everything is fine at that moment, no worries. Makes me remember that everything that's "important" here on earth really isn't. I could stare into the moon & stars forever...

    There aren't enough hours in the night.

    The air is still but the clock, it ticks. I haven't enough time in the night. I walk through the dark. I am amazed at how black the dark feels as my eyes find the sky. My breathing is easy. My walking is lazy. My thoughts are clear as I take in the night.

     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...
