I think most of us enjoy at least a little star gazing once in a while, right! And no I’m not talking about spotting Britney Spears at Spago! I’m speaking of actual star gazing…you know up in the sky. The biggest problem we have today is pollution, followed closely by too much incandescent light. To see the stars you gotta have some darkness. Not so easy to find unless you really head out into the countryside. Telescopes are pretty popular these days but I prefer simply being able to look up and see the stars. Now a telescope is of greater value when watching planets or other heavenly bodies that are further out and that you can’t see with the naked eye. NASA is about to launch a new telescope into space that will take the place of the Hubble Space Telescope. It’s called the James Webb Space Telescope and it will be launched in December. It will be the largest and most powerful ever put into space. It will travel to a lonely spot 1 million miles from Earth, where it will be able to peer out into the farthest reaches of the universe. Now we’re talkin’ star gazing! For more read below.
