Wonder and Awe

When was the last time you looked through a telescope (and for all of you dirty people out there, not that way)

I just came in from looking at a beautiful crescent moon through my dad's old telescope. And old does not necessarily mean bad in this case. It was just amazing. You can see all the seas (aka craters) and the edge of the shadow of the Earth is cool as well.

If you haven't hit up the planetarium since you were like 10, may I HIGHLY recommend finding one locally - they often have nights that are open to the public. Or take a class at the local community college. Or heck, buy a pair of binoculars and go crazy (again, not that kind of crazy). I can assure you a moment of total wonder and awe.

But bring the bugspray.
