The intriguing sky

We don't wake up early enough to see the sun rise.
We don't leave work early enough to see a bigger moon rise in the sky.

When was the last time we slept under the moonlight?
Or the last time we saw a raging red sky mingling with azure tints?
Have you ever questioned the patterns of an eclipse?
How often do our eyes search for particular constellations?
Did you know differentiating stars from planets was more fun?

You rather grab a camera when you see the sun's rays breaking under a cloud.
Or gaze at the craters on the moon through a telescope.

Behold. Stand. Stare. Admire that beautiful dome that protects us. That vast expanse of ever changing hues, which tells us how big, yet small the Earth is. 
The envelope that unites us with the rest of the Universe. The sky. 
It may all be too far, but the sight is still an amazing one.

Even I sometimes wonder whether it is better to grab a camera and capture pictures or savor the moment.
