Do you love to look out into space? I have to say that star gazing is one of my absolute favorite pastimes. Here in the city, I don’t always get the best view of the stars. Luckily, I do live in an urban neighborhood with very few streetlights, so I can see some stars most nights. And every so often I get a clear night when I can see many stars. On those nights, no matter how chilly or warm it is, I like to stand outside and look up for at least a few minutes.
Growing up in a small mountain town, I was able to see the stars almost every single night. I miss those quiet starry nights and the amazing things I was able to see. Seeing stars and the occasional planet is both thrilling and calming for me. When I can’t stargaze, I usually will watch a Dr. Who episode instead. I need to get my space fix somehow!
What about you? Do you find space as interesting or inspiring as I do? If I recall correctly, Blogthings has at least a few astronomy fans lurking about. My latest image quiz was inspired by the illustrations I found above – a collection of windows looking out into space. I felt like it would be fun to write a quiz that links your relationship with space to the image you choose. Here you go: How Are You Out of This World?
