The Perks Of Stars…

12 Aug

Tonight is the magical wonder that always stuns me, meteor shower.  Nothing is more magical in the world than the sky above us, I could sit for hours watching. I’m blessed to live in the country side, there is still a bit of light pollution and some nights don’t see the stars but most nights when the sky is clear you notice them.

Every now and then, I will have a look at the sky and notice how tiny and pea-sized the stars look. I end up coming up with the same realization that my two small eyes are receiving light from a huge, celestial body that is hundred of times bigger than the sun and trillions of miles further. The stars are roughly 36 trillion miles away from Earth, a distance which, in order to cover, I would have to run around the Earth in a straight line 932 million times and no matter where I am stood on the planet I will receive the same night time vision. This small realization always reminds me how spectacular the little things in life can be, and this brings a small smile to my face.
