For a while I was watching the stars and using planetarium software. Saw different messier objects with the telescope. Was very fun and magical because it's real. The most magical moment happened on a clear crisp night when I was peering up at the arm of our galaxy. For a moment, it felt like I was gaizing across a vast distance at something clearly concentrated and far far away. I almost felt like I'd lose my balance. The feeling of spatial distance was strong. Other than that moment, one night I was looking at Aldebaran and I can't remember the details of it, but the next day I read something about Aldebaran and something was odd about it. Funny I can't recall. Maybe it was a feeling? Not sure. But something - like a coincidence - made me remember it.edit on 3-12-2011 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)
