It sucks to live on the other side of the world of people you care about, because you can’t ever share any experiences, right? Wrong. Every 105 or so years you can.

There’s one thing that connects you to every other person, everyone you care about, no matter where they are around the world.

And that’s the cosmos. 

So even if you’re on the other side of the world from people you care about, you can still share real life experiences (ones that are in the physical world, not technological ones) and all it takes is to look up.

And you can actually do it more often than once every century (like the extent of last night’s lunar eclipse). Just look up. No matter where you are, or where your favourite people are on planet earth, we still share the same sky. Whether at night or day.

There is one thing that we can all see and take in the vastness of, and that’s the sky above us.
