Quote of the Day: Galileo Galilei

April 13th, 2014

“I’ve loved the stars to fondly to be fearful of the night”

– Galileo Galilei

I love the night stars and the moon as well. There’s nothing better than sitting out on a clear night watching the sky.

Do you enjoy stargazing?

    Susy, night skies are awesome. On a clear night away from civilization the stars pop out bright and the magnitude of just how humongous the universe is boggles the mind. High altitude viewing is even more amazing. Some times I get to go fishing with friends at a place in Nevada called “Wild Horse”. It’s a state park 50 miles from no where. The altitude is 6000 feet and the air is crisp and clear at night. The stars look so big and close, it almost seems like a person could reach up and touch one. It’s almost equal to a beautiful sunrise but not quite.

    Have a great sky viewing night.
