There is something very human about looking up at the night sky. In a way, it is staring directly into the unknown, not with a sense of fear, but of pure curiosity.

I get a funny feeling when I look up. It sparks questions that seem to make whatever happened that day on earth irrelevant. I can’t help but wonder.

I wonder how far away the stars are and how long it would take to get there. I imagine myself standing on this spinning ball that is hurling around the sun. I imagine what each star would look like if I were up close.

When’s the last time you looked up?
