Blood Moon

Moon eclipse with Spica (262 light years away)

As I stood outside, freezing, I couldn’t help but truly appreciate the beauty of the night sky. There she lay before me; twinkling stars, orbiting planets, and the eclipsed moon. Even with my glasses on, I can only see a tiny fraction of the millions and millions of stars/suns. I still have such a childhood awe that looks up with such an amazement and humbleness. I enjoy feeling small. I enjoy seeing that the world, the galaxy, the universe is much bigger than I am. It, in a way, makes my life challenges seem even smaller; less challenging.
