Sometimes I think we forget just how small we really are. This video shows the astonishing number of stars and galaxies in just this one little patch
of sky. I was just mesmerized by it. We get so caught up in gloom, doom, and the trivial....sometimes we just have to be reminded that we are just a
minuscule part of the big picture. Whether you believe in God, Allah, Buddha, or Science......one fact remains....there is SOMETHING bigger than ALL

This is something to think about as well.....it just blows my mind! It's old, but I never tire of it....just amazing when you think that ALL those
GALAXIES are in a tiny spot of the universe....yet each of those galaxies are so large, we can't comprehend! So, think about that, and then try to
imagine how big the universe is!
This is why I got into science. I long for the day we are a truly intelligent culture, not distracted by jealousy or greed, and we are able to
appreciate the awe and wonder of our universe. A time when all of us understand our place in the grand existence that we are part of. When we no
longer worry about how someone else's hair looks, or what model our car is...
We are a grain of salt to a grain of salt to a grain of salt... but we are all part of the same cosmic wonder.
Such a beautiful video to watch. Thank you for posting. It's not hard to imagine that these observations are designed to pull the heart strings of
an individual, as if we really are connected to the vast universe.
Well put! That is what I was tring to say. When I see things like this, it makes me think of all the energy we put into destroying our planet and
ourselves. If we were able to use that energy for the common good, who knows what we could achieve.......but unfortunately, man's nature probably
will never allow that.
Yes, and it certainly did.....I found myself totally mesmerized by it....goosebumps and all. I think everyone should take at least 30 minutes every
night, to go outside with a lawn chair and just look at the sky. It's a great stress reliever! I always think, as I look at the sky, that the answers
to everything is SOMEWHERE out there....
