Star gazing is one of my favorite activities.
I love to take people stargazing for the first time- seeing their reactions to the wiggling of the stars, and connections and conversations that flow abundantly.
Star gazing goes a lot deeper than looking at the stars.
Star gazing is an experience, a form of art.
And it might change the way you see life.
When we look into the night sky, we are time travelers.
We travel to the past, into ancient light of stars billions of light years away.
How amazed would we be if we were able to see the stars as they actually are, right now?
An argument I’ve heard -against the possibility of extraterrestrial life, is:
IF aliens exist- we would have discovered evidence of aliens in space by now.
How could we know what is out there when we are looking into the past? Telescopes cannot see space in real time, because of how light travels across space time.
Voyager 2, a space probe from Nasa, may have been hacked by aliens when it left our solar system and entered heliospace. The distant space craft began transmitting strange messages. Further investigation found that one line of binary code was changed from 0 to a 1- which could be a glitch or a hack.
I think it’s more probable that there are many aliens, within our own Galaxy- and across the Universe, who’ve come together to form intergalactic organizations, and they avoid making their presence known to worlds not capable of intergalactic travel. I think that would make a lot of sense, considering the youth of our own galaxy, and the relatively young age of our solar system within the Milky Way galaxy.
Our Solar System itself is estimated to be just over 4.5 billion years old. Imagine how little you would know about our solar system if you were on another planet relying on the ancient light of our Sun? You may not even see any of the planets yet forming around our Sun!
I think for these reasons it’s important to be open to the possibility of life in space. I believe in life is out there, same as I believe life is on Earth. I’ve seen UFOs and had evidence of alien interactions throughout my life.
You might be wondering…
How do I get started with stargazing?
1. Find a secluded place. Somewhere away from the city and lights, so that you have a clear view of the stars in the sky. I like somewhere in nature, and meditate before.
2. Bring blankets, sleeping bags, and comfy stuff to lay down on. Added bonus bring snacks with you 🙂
3. Lay down down and look up at the sky.
