Asterisks of Eternity

Celestial objects are the asterisks of eternity. Stargazers observe objects like stars, planets, asteroids, comets and novae in the night sky.

In the last half of August, the brilliantly shining planets Venus and Jupiter, and fainter planets Saturn and Mars, streak past each other.

"Venus & Jupiter Conjunction" by Marek Nikodem, 19 August 2014

We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
