I hear it isn't that common but I do it quite a bit and it always is depressing to me. makes me think of my own mortality and insignificance anybody feel same as me or otherwise lol any answers welcomed
Quite frequently. I live near a mountain range with plenty of lookoff's that allow you to see the full sky with very little light pollution. On a night with low humidity and few clouds, you can see the Milky Way. I don't find it depressing though, I find it uplifting, as a Christian, to know that God could create all of the trillions of stars and zillions of planets out there, it makes me realize just how insignificant the problems of Man are, that all of those problems could be fixed with just a thought from God if people actually had faith in him.
Yep, I watch the night skies often. One, because the stars are so beautiful and I don't have to go far to see them away from the city lights. And two, because my area is known for ufo sightings and weird anomalies in the sky, haha. I've seen some interesting s.hit. BUT I've been watching lately because there's a meteor shower. =D
it's hard to see them in the city, but when I visit my family's home, I like sitting outside or going to the beach to look at the stars and the moon. it doesn't make me feel sad, it makes me feel calm. like even though everything might be going to hell on earth, up there, it's everything's perfect and beautiful.
Rarely, but I do look when I hear that there will be a meteor shower. I grab my dslr camera, a tripod, and try to take beautiful pictures of the stars, the moon, snd anything else up there that looks interesting.
"I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars." - Niel deGrasse Tyson
