“If I just lay here… would you lay with me and just forget the world?”
Star Gazing or Astronomy is the wish of contemplating the heavens above and looking at the stars and planets…
While astronomy is considered to be a relaxing outdoor activity, most of the people tend to be unable to call it to mind. However, one needs to keep in mind the qualities needed for star gazing: strength, balance, flexibility, agility, and coordination.
Astronomy is the scientific study of stars, planets, comets, galaxies and several other singularities that originate outside the Earth’s stratosphere. It is linked to the evolution, physics, chemistry, meteorology, and motion of cosmic objects, as well as the creation and development of the universe.
According to Wikipedia, “Astronomy is one of the oldest sciences. Astronomers of early civilizations performed methodical observations of the night sky, and astronomical artifacts have been found from much earlier periods. However, the invention of the telescope was required before astronomy was able to develop into a modern science. Historically, astronomy has included disciplines as diverse as astrometry, celestial navigation, observational astronomy, the making of calendars, and even astrology, but professional astronomy is nowadays often considered to be synonymous with astrophysics.”
If you’ve got the astronomy call in your blood, get one of the numerous astronomy magazines or books. Moreover, it’s good to keep in mind that there are several online astronomy shops and stores. You can get your telescopes and binoculars or posters…
Nowadays, the option of buying a star and register it in the name of someone you love do exist. You can opt for this to show how much you cherish a person, or better… take him/her under the stars on a starry night; the earth, the sky, and the whole universe are one, and yours.
