Last night I was watching at the stars through the car window.

I love stars. I find it fascinating that stars we are seeing are not in fact the stars of today, but the stars of millions of years ago, when dinosaurs roamed our earth (or something like that...). The vast majority of the stars you are seeing are still alive, just as they were, but a handful of the stars you are seeing are the ghosts of stars past, as their light takes millions of year to reach us. Star ghosts... Isn't that pretty cool...?
