Humans, look up!

You live in a narrow strip of life on an encrusted ball of molten rock six million times larger than yourself, which is hurtling around a nuclear fusion energy source yet twenty-thousand times more farther away. Following you in this whirl around a central plasma are seven other comparable or larger round balls of rock, liquid, and gas together with yet uncounted objects of varying shapes and sizes waiting for you to see them. Meanwhile, other massive plasma balls lie hundreds of thousands times further away with their own collections of circling rocks and things. Yet these faraway Suns together with your own form a small group of several hundred billion that lies another multi-hundred thousands of times as far away as the closest neighboring Sun, and even collections of these groups form structures that make up all the bafflingly large known Universe.

To know this outward perspective, you must first look. You must look at the rising and setting of the Sun and its changes through the seasons. You must watch the Moon wax and wane while it dances against the stars in an out-of-sync two-step that realigns every 19 years. You must see the stars move across the sky and see their appearance depend on the Sun and season of the year. You must observe the bright wanderers move slowly against the stars from night to night. You must keep an eye out for those rare falling stars and hairy-tailed stars that sometimes reappear. With this beginning, you must harness the technology humankind has developed to enhance your senses and see deeper and farther.

To know your place in the Universe and the meaning of life on Earth, you must look up!
