How do you feel when you look at the stars?
My mom thinks I’m odd when I rush to the backyard on a warm summer night with my camera, tripod, and a 1-dollar battery-operated lanterns. She doesn’t understand why I’m suddenly into these weird things like star gazing but really, she had tried to get me to like this stuff when I was young.
When she had to take an astronomy class, she would drag me along to events like viewing of the moon and other planets. I’ve seen quite a few planets through the telescope and it was so cool but cool was all it was for my young mind.
I guess it’s true what people – you’re wiser with age.
Now, when I look up and see the stars, I see this massive world and I’m just a tiny part of it. Each of stars could be a planet with life out there, life which may be similar to ours. It’s so wild to imagine that.
