Constellation Hunter – Pegasus

Join me on my Astronomical League Constellation Hunter Progress. Below you can find the constellation of Pegasus and it’s observation I made in July.

Pegasus – the steed of Persius

To say I’ve enjoyed the pursuit of the great constellations would be an understatement.  I have enjoyed every second of it!  While it has taken me a while to get my bearings at the scope, i’ve just now begun to realize…

WHERE

AM

I

IN

THE

COSMOS.

AND SO I ASK…

Up, down, near, far…

Can you locate yourself in the great cosmos… 

No, I’m not talking about your relation to the near-est wal-mart. 

WHERE  YOU ARE IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS.

Just like we rotate around a STAR, our galaxy rotates around a celestial curiosity… Do you understand that?

Do you comprehend the distance?

Do you understand how incredible you are in the scheme of things?

What differences you can make?

Much like the great writers of our times have sought to implore introspection, of the soul… 

I implore you to consider your…

PLACE.

Where are you?

Not in relation to your physical understanding… but the UNIVERSE.

?


It is a gift.

Don’t waste it…

    This is my quest as well. I’d love to hear more of your place in space musings. Scale is so nearly incomprehensible, but direction and up/down/ahead/behind etc are well within grasping reach! Pegasus: the view below and a bit ahead of our star; out the low side of Earth’s journey around the steeply-tipped solar disc (ecliptic plane).

      Wonderfully explained, Jim. It can certainly make one’s head spin trying to come to terms with our place in the cosmos. Thanks for your insight!
