Upside Down Bowl (Revised)

Today, I was fortunate to go on a field trip to the planetarium with a friend. The best part was the sky show where you sit a reclining seat inside a giant upside down bowl, which is the screen. That way you feel like you are really looking up and around the night sky if you were outside in a rural area. Actually I remember the seats reclining more when I was a in grade school.

Apparently, I have been looking at too many pro-life, reproduction, biology blogs and websites because when I saw the supernova, I thought, "cytoblast." There was one graphic of a galaxy that looked like a placenta.  Another star looked like an eye.

I thought of the golden ratio I learned about in art class.The golden ratio exists in art, our human body, plants, and architecture. 

Also, the sky show said that someday our sun will burn out, and our Milky Way Galaxy will collide with another galaxy. Cool! Awesome! And since I have my Catholic faith, I'm not worried about any of those things happening.

We have an awesome universe created by an awesome God, who is a master mathematician and artist.

We have a planetarium in my hometown and I LOVE watching the sky at night with the stars and constellations in the show. I have been able to pick out a few constellations and remember them for real-life nighttime star-gazing.
I'm so glad you loved it too!
