One of the unexpected joys of home ownership, as well as the fact we live farther out in the "boonies," is the great view of the sky. We have a big sliding glass door on the back of our house that faces south. I am constantly amazed by the stars, the moon, and the planets that float above. My favorite constellation, Orion (I think that should be a requirement of a nerd.), can easily be seen almost all night. It was really cool seeing the Moon, Jupiter, and Venus all line up a couple months ago.
Honestly, just looking up at all the stars is mind blowing. I wonder what other people think when they look at those same stars. One of my goals in life is to capture an asteroid and return it to earth. If I last as long as my grandparents, I have a little under 60 years to pull this off. That's a huge amount of time, but it is a monstrous undertaking.
