    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...

    where you are!! In England at this time of year. It starts to turn cold and grey. Yet today. We have a bright blue sky and very little cloud.

    Inspired By The Sky

    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...

    Moonset

    Late last week I was admiring the waxing fruit moon after it had risen above the treeline and had begun to cast a ghostly reflection upon the lake's choppy waters.  It occurred to me what a great thing it would be to stay up late enough to watch it set on the distant horizon...

    My sister and I are storm enthusiasts.

    We are always eagerly awaiting the next cumulonimbus cloud to watch from a hill. In a coastal southern city so we have them a lot in the summer. The afternoon showers are the only thing that make the wretched heat bearable. We look up.... Stars, clouds, it's all fascinating

    The sky is one of the most amazing things in

    the world. Clouds changing into different shapes, sometimes the sky is clear.. or maybe looking at sunrises or sunsets. The night sky? Beautiful. I guess you could say it amazes me all around. I think though, that the sky shows it's true colors at night. Shows it's true self...

    Like Last 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...

    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 seriously love doing this.

    It's always so alive, day or night. Just reminds me how incredible this world we live in is. Especially a night sky, gosh that always takes my breath away. I have yet to stargaze properly some day. Don't get much of a night sky here in the city.

    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...

    I was laying under the stars,

    smoking some weed with my closest friend sharing deep thoughts about our universe. We looked at the faintest star and imagined beings looking at our faint star at the same moment, wondering the same thing. Sometimes I believe I was born in the wrong era, as if I was supposed to...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    This life is nor about me

    neither about you or anyone else. It's about us! It's about all for one and one for all. How do I know? I saw where each point of view could lead us. I saw what happens when people are partial and how it slowly drags everybody down including themselves. I also saw what happens...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    When I visited the mountains this year

    for vacation, my favorite part of the day was going out late at night and watching the sky. The first night I laid on the porch and saw a shooting star. It was so amazing. The sky was so clear there. I only live a few hours away from the mountains, but the difference in the...

    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...

    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 can't help but look up at the night sky

    when there's no clouds and just wondering what is all out there. It's soothing but all the while depressing. I want to be out there, not anchored to a world I've already grown tired of.
