Here I thought since you believe life just starts from nothing and and puddle of crud shows up and then life evolves that you might believe it should happen in other far away planets. Stupid you. LOL

There is little question in my mind that life exists elsewhere, there is zero credible evidence that intelligent life have ever been here ( form elsewhere anyway )

This is one of the first questions 4th grade school children have when I do an astronomy demonstration for them.

Worse than that, I have friends that join me show theirs as well.

The kids ran away screaming for their parents... who also wanted to see.

it is funny, if we get one kid, in 15 minutes we have a neighborhood full of kids and their parents taking a look.

For all the cool stuff I could show them, Saturn and Jupiter always steal the show.

Love astronomy !!!! When we go
camping in Santa Barbara,some
nice folks with telescopes set up
for all the kids....Saturn does steal
the show! We were able to see the
ISP without a telescope,as the
astronomers pointed it out!!!

One time ( years ago ) I was there with the Santa Barbara group, nice people.

Yeah. it is a gawkers hobby :)

No matter how many times you see something, you never tire of it.

I am a Nebula hound, my wife loves locating galaxies

But when the kids come out ( usually in light polluted areas ) we stick to planets, the moon, maybe a globular cluster or a bright nebula.

It usually leads into questions about the speed of light, and time, every time you look at anything, you are looking backwards in time. The Moon is a few seconds, the Sun 8 minutes, we are seeing it as it was 8 minutes ago. The further away you look the further back in time you are looking.

Naked eye you can ( if you know exactly where to look ) see the center of the Andromeda Galaxy, and back in time 2.2 million years.

With the aid of a small telescope into the tens and hundreds of millions of years, seeing more distant galaxies that are further away.

OUR Wal-Mart, a group of current and former workers that have been staging protests at its stores, held a press conference in Washington, to pressure the discounter to pay all of its full-time workers at least $25,000 a year.

It's planning another round of protests at its stores on the day after Thanksgiving, the traditional kickoff for the holiday shopping season.

correction...the moon is around 1.2 light seconds ( I dont know how I always say that wrong, not the first time )

It is like seeing a person use a hammer far away, the sight of it gets to you faster than the sound.

But the light also takes time, just over 186,282 miles a second.

The sun is

Yes,we are going back to SB in Nov,
I hope the group is there again as
well.You are right,you can never get
tired of seeing the amazing sky!
That's cool that you can see ancient
galaxies,I didn't know that was
possible......

Not my group, I am involved in a group in northern California

but I was down south once and hooked up with the SB group, they were really nice people.

It isn’t that they are ancient ( well they are, you aren’t wrong ) it is that it took hundreds of millions of years for the light to get where they were, to hit our eyes now. They could have blown up millions of years ago, and we wouldn’t t know it yet.( not likely ) as we are seeing them as they were millions upon millions of years ago.

Even the Moon when you look at the moon you are seeing it how it was 1.2 second ago.

When you see the sun, you are seeing how it was 8 minutes ago.

It is true of everything, even looking across the street you are seeing back in time... but only by split nanoseconds, so close to “now” you would never know the difference.

The closet star is over 4 light years away, we see the light it generated over 4 years ago.
