Galaxy Gazing: Today’s Featured Scene
Isn’t it odd – when we look at the stars they appear as specs in our sky, but is there anything else in our environment that can make us feel so small?
They say we’re made of stardust. Everything is. A recent issue of National Geographic taught us that the farther away we look, the more we learn about ourselves – and our own universe.
In the summertime it’s easier to stargaze. The outdoors calls. When s’mores and storytelling eventually quiet down, there’s that magical moment when you sit back and look up at those other possible worlds. Perhaps you find yourself wondering more about this one too.
