Do you ever look up at the night sky and feel a sense of nostalgia?

I have felt that way since as far back as I can remember, thank you for posting the beautiful pictures and it's nice to know so many of us feel the same.

I don't feel nostalgic when staring at the sky, it's more like a longing that I can't describe.

Great post, something I can really relate to. I find myself looking up at the stars quite frequently and always longing to know whats really out there.

Maybe I will get abducted by some friendly little green men who will show me something interesting

get thread buddy

i gotta agree with you man the universe is a beautiful and deadly place

imagine seeing a star just before it goes into supernova, imagine gazing from a alien moon and looking down upon an alien earth that has oceans and greenery

makes you feel pretty insignificant doesnt it

I feel that too but I also have memories of it. Gave me a lot of problems this lifetime when I learned to ignore meeting someone who is here that I knew out there.

Call me nuts but I guess I can say it here.

I used to feel this way. Now, I think that where ever I am at...as long as I am in a state of seemingly separation from other life and space...I will have this longing sensation where ever I am. As long as there is space and stars and wonderment for me to look upon...I think Im going to feel a sensation to be where I can not reach.

I thought i was the only one...some days, all i do is look at space pictures, some of them make me cry, literally...

All i want from my life is to travel the stars...too bad it wont happen...for now, i must settle with pictures, and the night sky.

when i look up at the stars i cant help but just stand there and stare because of there sheer beauty.

from the naked eye you look up and cant help but say "how am i here< why am i here if not to investigate this that i am looking at"

the night sky is amazing everything that has to do with the universe is a amazing

if i can quote Carl Sagan

From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of particular interest. But for us, it's different. Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.


Pale Blue Dot

one of the best ways to ever look at Earth it self

just picked a post at random to reply to.. =) ever since i was a kid staring at the night sky, trying to count the stars, i felt.. at home.. like i didn't belong on this poxy ( yet beautiful) planet.. TV and film transplant humanity on the unknown (Babylon5.. Star Trek.. Star Wars..The last Star Fighter to name but a few) yet to claim that this behaviour is universal.. ludicrous =) even a little egotistical.. I've always wanted to travel through space (still do at 37 =)
