Do you ever look up at the sky at night and get all caught up? Sometimes I do. It's so fascinating. It's really difficult—if not impossible—to fathom what we're seeing when we look at the stars. We're seeing things that happened millions of years ago. We're seeing things so far away, we can't even begin to imagine. One of the things I think about is what it must have been like for early people to look up and see these heavenly bodies, not having any idea what they were, which was a source of religious beliefs, myths, and other ways people came up with ways to explain the unexplainable.

I still love to find constellations. I only remember a few, but it's still so cool to see Orion's belt, the Big Dipper and Little Dipper, and a few others I can recognize.

So when you look up at the night sky, just ponder these things. And ponder the fact that we all see the same heavenly bodies when we look at the night sky. So beautiful.
