What gets my blood pumping in place?
For me its looking up at night into outer space.
I have always loved astronomy and the stars.
Staring into forever and wondering about Mars.
The facts are minding blowing and to me they're fun.
Like it would take 1.3 million Earths to fill up the Sun.
Then how the Sun is one big ball of enormous power.
And we are flying through space at 67,000 mph.
Every time you look up at the stars at night,
you see an old photograph of a stars light.
The closest star's light takes over 4 years to get here.
So we never actually get to see it clear.
I could sit here and go on and on,
and keep writing all the way til dawn.
But that means I would miss the light show.
So go outside and look up at what you don't know.
