September 14- our Galaxy

Dear September,

this Sunday I have given a visit to the Palais de la Découverte at the 16 arrondissement in Paris. Different expositions present scientific discoveries in physics, mathematics, geology, and my interest, astronomy. Quite a program!

The Planetarium, simulated the sky at night if we were at 3.000 meters of altitude and a clear atmosphere. So amazing, so overwhelming! And somewhere, a small, less bright and clear spot, the galaxy of Andromeda, that we can perceive with our eyes; not very impressive without any appropriate instrument.

But so amazing to realize we are on this beautiful planet, that seems to me the most beautiful, and to be part of a galaxy, that is in itself a small piece of a much bigger universe!

Our planet is for the time being the most hospitable place for Life;

Life in all its forms, is actually so rare and precious in the universe!

It is worth preserving and protecting for us and the generations to come!

  1. Beautifully put. I am also a fan of astronomy and find the galaxy fascinating. It’s funny how small our lives (and problems) look like from above, right? 🙂

  2. I have always enjoyed the night’s sky. And being a fan of Sci-fi – I can only hope there is another place that we might be able to move to when the time comes….

    Been busy in this neck of the woods. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
