    Wonder of it all


    Someone has to revel at the wonder of it all. If not us whom? If not now when? Simple observation. Simple question. Nothing hypothetical, theoretical, ptroblematic or argumentative.

    I just bought an ads orber🙂

    Speaking of wonder, last night we had a rare treat, Venus and a crescent moon pretty close together in the night sky. I tried like hell to get a good picture, I get home after dark and saw that magnificent sight, very bright. I have a nice high end point and shoot Panasonic camera and tried to find a spot to get a picture but here in Pennsylvania around my neck of the woods, that's what you find, lots of woods. All of which conspired to keep me from finding a decent dark spot to take pics. By the time I got to a place where I had a decent field of view, the moon was so close to the horizon I could not get a decent image.

    Running around in the woods in the middle of the night? With a camera? In the winter? Taking pictures of stuff in space?

    I guess! I mean, if you want pictures, couldn't you just buy some?

    Great stuff, Sonhouse! I've always appreciated and have learned from the passions of other people. One lifetime's patently too short to possibly see or do it all yourself. If iand/or whenever invited to do so, why not avail yourself of the opportunity to look over the shoulder and into the avocations of another person?

    Unfortunately your "simple question" is based on a false premise.

    Someone has to revel at the wonder of it all ... Why?

    Yes the wonder of it all that we see is only a small part of it.

    Isaiah 40:26
    New Living Translation (NLT)

    26 Look up into the heavens.
    Who created all the stars?
    He brings them out like an army, one after another,
    calling each by its name.
    Because of his great power and incomparable strength,
    not a single one is missing.

    Respect your right to hold opinions contrary to any of mine. Curiously, though, that all of us from time

    to time revel at less than the grandeur of the universe through both the telescope and microscope.

    For every observer there is a unique universe and that is the true wonder of sentient life.
