What does the night sky symbolize

The night sky: What do stars, shooting stars and the moon tell us?

When night falls and darkness drifts across the sky, amazement begins. The night sky always inspires many people. Suddenly thousands of small, glowing dots can be seen in the sky, which make the observer dream.
The universe, the stars and the moon have fascinated people for a long time. Many puzzles have already been solved, but there is still so much to discover.

What are stars and how do shooting stars come about? We don't ask ourselves these questions too often in everyday life, but when we look at the night sky, they come to mind. We realize that there is so much more than what we know and start dreaming.

In this guide we would like to reveal the little secret about the stars, shooting stars and the moon. We bring clarity to the night sky and show you the meanings of the heavenly bodies.

Table of Contents

the essentials in brief

  • The night sky is the dark sky that is limited in time to dusk and dawn.
  • Orientation in the sky at night is important in order to recognize objects and constellations and to be able to find your way around.
  • Stars are self-luminous celestial bodies and have a great symbolic and spiritual meaning.
  • Shooting stars are dust particles that penetrate the earth's atmosphere and burn up. However, they are of great importance and are considered bearers of hope.
  • The moon is the natural satellite of the earth and has great forces that act on the earth. But its spiritual and symbolic meaning should not be ignored either.

The dark night sky with the many shining stars fascinates people and makes them dream.

What is the night sky?

The dark sky is called the night sky. The time limit is between dusk and dawn. Absolute darkness is reached when the sun is 18 ° below the horizon. However, the night begins when the sun is 12 ° below the local horizon.
In astronomy, a night sky is a starry sky with good visibility and low cloud cover.

Background: What you should know about the night sky

It is not difficult to define the night sky, but it is complex to understand. Because there is much more to it than meets the eye.

Our galaxy consists of an estimated 200 billion stars.
But what are stars actually? How can it be that we perceive them as shining points in the sky? How do shooting stars come about and why are we allowed to wish something from them? Why does the moon play such an important role?
Very few people can answer these questions immediately. The starry sky can be seen every evening under optimal conditions. Have you always wanted to know exactly what is behind the stars, shooting stars and the moon? What do they tell us and what significance do they have?

In this guide we answer the most important questions about the night sky. You can be sure to impress with this knowledge!

Important facts in advance:
  • Stars move from east to west
  • the exact line from north to south is called the meridian
  • the zenith - the highest point in the sky - is exactly above the observation site
  • the polar star Polaris serves as a fixed point of reference in the starry sky

Orientation to the night sky

At first, the night sky can be very irritating. It is difficult to find your way around and, for example, to recognize constellations or to determine the cardinal points. But don't worry! Take your time and just take a look at the sky. Little by little you will find your way around and recognize more and more.

There are aids to make orientation easier.

  • Find cardinal points
  • Constellations
  • rotatable star map
  • Apps

Find cardinal points

With the help of constellations, the cardinal points can be easily determined. The North Star is in the north of the sky and can always be seen there all year round. You can use it to orientate yourself easily and find out where north is.

The special star can be found by the Big Bear, also known as the Big Dipper and the Little Bear, also known as the Little Dipper.
If you have found the Big Dipper with its seven stars, you now have to look for the last two box stars. Assuming that the car is standing straight, these can be found on the far right of the picture, vertically. You now connect these two stars in your mind and then extend them a few times upwards in a straight line. A bright star can be seen there - the North Star. This is also the beginning of the Little Dipper. You could also call it the “handle” of the Little Dipper.
Now that you know where north is, you can easily orientate yourself using the night sky.

Constellations

Constellations can also help to orientate oneself in the night sky. There are very distinctive images that can be easily found. These include, for example, the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper, or the Orion Belt, which consists of three bright, closely spaced stars in a row. From these points you can find your way around and determine, for example, where north is.

The rotatable star map

The rotatable star map is an aid to orientate yourself to the starry sky. It is important to note that you choose a map with the correct latitude. The starry sky cannot be observed in the same way all over the world. Once you have chosen the right card, you can easily set the date with the day and month and the exact time. The section that you can see in the sky can now be seen on the star map.

Tip: If you want to observe the constellations in the north, you should hold the star map so that the north is pointing downwards on the map. So you can optimally observe the stars and identify the constellations.
The center of the star map shows which stars are at the zenith. The edge of the map symbolizes the horizon around you.

Mobile apps

Apps are particularly suitable for beginners to observe the night sky. After the location has been specified and the date and time have been recorded, the app automatically calculates what the starry sky looks like and displays the result. There are additional explanations in the mobile apps so that knowledge is also conveyed.
This method is particularly suitable for beginners to combine theory and practice.

What are stars

A star is a celestial body with a very high mass that is self-luminous.
Stars are made up of very hot gas clouds. They are made of hydrogen and helium. Since it is several million degrees Celsius hot in the core of the stars, the energy of the gases is converted into light so that the star shines. Even though the celestial body is many trillions of kilometers from Earth, we can see the light. Due to the gravity of their own mass, the stars are held together and form a spherical shape.

What stars are there?

The stars differ in several factors. For example in size, mass, age and luminosity. A star is constantly evolving and changing its factors during this time.
The stars seem very small to us humans on earth, but that is only because they are many trillions of kilometers away from us. The heavenly bodies are very large. There are both small and large stars, but even the small stars are about 10 times the size of the earth. The largest stars can reach a size that is a hundred thousand times that of the earth.
The age of the stars can also vary widely. While there are still very young stars that are just a few million years old and new stars are always forming, the oldest stars are already 10 billion years old.

The stars in the night sky shine like little dots. They differ visibly in size and luminosity.

A distinction is made between different types of stars. For example there are the yellow dwarfs or the orange giants. These categorizations are not in themselves recognizable when you look at the sky. They only refer to the physical and chemical properties of the stars.
The most famous star is the sun. She is the star that is closest to the earth. Its energy is so great that it can provide us with warmth and light. The sun belongs to the type of yellow dwarf.
There are also single stars and double stars. They form the various star systems. Many of the stars that we can observe in the night sky are single stars. However, around three quarters of the stars are double systems or even multiple systems. Many of them have their own planetary system, so that they move around a common central star. It is very difficult for us to distinguish between single stars and double stars. It is not possible to tell a difference with the naked eye.

How do we see the stars?

We see the light of the stars, which is many kilometers away from the earth. That is exactly the reason why we only ever see the past of the stars.
The light from the sun to the earth takes exactly 8 minutes and 19 seconds. However, since the sun is the closest star to the earth, all other lights of the stars take longer. So it can be that the light of the star Sirius needs 8 years.

We can only see the stars as they were when the light we see at that moment left them.
This makes it possible for us to see a star that in reality no longer exists because it has already exploded.

The constellations

Constellations consist of a group of prominent stars that have been shaped into figures by humans. The constellations only exist because humans set them up.
The first constellations go back to the Babylonians and Egyptians and they are related to the 12 zodiac signs.
In astronomy one speaks of constellations, in astrology, however, of zodiac signs, whereby the interpretation of the celestial bodies plays the greatest role.

It is interesting that people in different places around the world also see different starry skies. A distinction is made between the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere. The most famous constellations here in the northern hemisphere are, for example, the Big Bear, the Little Bear and Orion.
Other constellations are:

Asterisms are special. One speaks of them with known star constellations, which however do not result in a real constellation. The best-known example is the small car. He is part of the constellation Little Bear.
Since there are a multitude of constellations, the International Astronomical Union agreed in 1922 on 88 constellations that are still valid today.

What are shooting stars?

Shooting stars are objects that penetrate the earth's atmosphere and burn up. That is also the reason why we see a strip of light in the sky.
So shooting stars don't really have anything to do with the stars. It's just dust particles that comets leave behind in space.

What is the difference between a meteor and a falling star?

There is no difference between a meteor and a shooting star except for the name. Both terms denote a luminous phenomenon in the sky.

How do shooting stars come about?

Just like the earth, comets also orbit the sun. Comets are small celestial bodies that are often a few kilometers in diameter. They consist of frozen water and dust particles. When the comets approach the sun, they lose dust particles, which remain as dust tracks in space. When the earth passes through such a dust trail on its orbit around the sun, a falling star stream occurs, caused by the cometary dust particles.
Since the earth and the dust tracks intersect every year, meteor currents can be precisely calculated.

The following streams of falling stars can be seen during the year:

Name of the shooting star streamPeriod in which it can be seen
QuadrantidsDecember 28th to February 12th
High point: January 3rd
LyridsApril 16 to April 25
High point: April 22nd
PerseidsJuly 17th to August 24th
High point: August 12th
OrionidsOctober 2nd to November 7th
21./22. October
TauridsSeptember 15 to November 25
Highlight: November 10th
LeonidsNovember 6th to November 30th
Highlight: November 17th
GeminidsDecember 4th to December 17th
Highlight: December 14th

Why do shooting stars shine?

The shooting stars shine because the dust particles hit the earth's atmosphere at high speed. The dust particles burn up due to the resulting frictional heat. The atoms of the atmosphere are stimulated to glow and the glow is created along the trajectory, which we perceive as the tail of the falling star.

What is the moon

The moon is a celestial body that can also be called the natural satellite of the earth. It is closest to the earth and is significantly smaller in comparison, and also has a much lower mass. The moon rotates around the earth, whereby we only ever see its front side. The back of the moon remains hidden.
We see the moon in a different shape every day. This is because the moon disc only shines through the reflection of sunlight and the moon goes through different phases. A complete lunar cycle lasts a total of 29.5 days. The phases of the moon within a cycle are called:

  • new moon
  • waxing crescent
  • Full moon
  • waning crescent
  • new moon

We see the moon in a different appearance every day. The reason for this is the lunar cycle. The moon goes through different phases.

The meaning of stars, falling stars and the moon: scientific, spiritual and symbolic

It is human nature to want to explain events, givens and occurrences. We want to understand the meaning and research until we find it. Sometimes, however, we also make sense of events and eventually develop a belief in them.
The heavenly bodies have also occupied man for a long time. The constellations go back to the Babylonians, for example. They were used for orientation for seafarers and gradually acquired a spiritual meaning, from which astrology arose.
In this paragraph we explore the different meanings of the stars, shooting stars and the moon.

The stars

Stars - they cover the night sky with shining points, astonish us, dream and reflect. The stars play an important role in cultures, in science and in human imagination, and they played these roles many years ago. The stars were used for navigation, for calendar setting and for religious interpretations.
What other meanings they have, we will describe to you in the following section.

The scientific importance

The stars can also be used to gain scientific knowledge, to orientate oneself in space, or even to determine calendars.

Astronomy is also known as astronomy. It is about the exploration of objects in the universe, with their positions, movements and properties. From 1600 the constellations were used to identify the objects in the sky regions by name.
For many years, more precisely for millennia, the stars have been used as signposts. In the past, seafarers used it to orient themselves and to be able to determine the ship's position. Today the star system plays an important role in determining the orientation of satellites in space. The exact constellation of the stars is used.

The Pleiades are an open star cluster, which is also called the “seven stars”. At that time they were used to set the calendar and their position was used by seafarers for navigation. They can be seen in the northern starry sky from May to October and used to represent the beginning and the end of a shipping season.

Calendar calculations were made based on their positions and they were used for navigation in seafaring. The Pleiades - an open cluster of stars, which is also known as the “seven stars” - can be seen in the northern starry sky from May to October and early described the beginning and end of a shipping season
The stellar calendar was created by setting the calendar with the help of the stars. The annual data are based on the status of the stars. For example, the Mayan calendar and the ancient Egyptian calendar emerged from astronomical observations.

The spiritual meaning

Astrology includes the interpretation of astronomical events as well as earthly processes. In doing so, the interrelationships are considered and connected.

The basis of astrology are the 12 constellations of the zodiac. At birth, each person receives their individual zodiac sign, which can also be called the zodiac sign. Different, typical character traits are ascribed to the individual zodiac signs. These should be found in all people born under the zodiac sign. Each star sign is assigned to a certain period and is based on an individual star constellation.
The 12 zodiac constellations are named as follows and assigned to this data:

star signdate
CapricornDecember 22nd to January 20th
AquariusJanuary 21st to February 19th
fishesFebruary 20th to March 20th
AriesMarch 21st to April 20th
bullApril 21st to May 20th
TwinsMay 21st to June 21st
cancerJune 22nd to July 22nd
lionJuly 23rd to August 23rd
VirginAugust 24th to September 23rd
LibraSeptember 24th to October 23rd
ScorpioOctober 24th to November 22nd
SagittariusNovember 23 to December 21

Not all zodiac signs are named like ours. In other countries there are not only other names, but also other constellations. For example, completely different stars are combined into one constellation. The greatest deviations are to the Chinese and Egyptian zodiac signs. Our zodiac sign Pisces is the crocodile in Egypt and the pig in China.
This confirms that the constellations arise only from the imagination of the people. The astrology of cultures and countries in particular differs greatly.

The symbolic meaning

The stars are a common symbol. Whether as decoration, on pictures or as a stylistic element - the star can often be seen. But what does it actually mean?

Many meanings are ascribed to the star, but a precise description of the symbol is difficult. It is also interpreted in different ways in different cultures.
It is difficult to describe the symbol of the star because the star itself already has several astronomical meanings. On the one hand, the celestial bodies are called stars, on the other hand, our neighboring planets and the suns are also known.

If one ignores the astronomical aspects, however, stars generally represent the unattainable and the heavenly. This interpretation comes about through the appearance of the stars in the night sky, which cast a spell over people. They became a fascination and an object of superstition. In our culture we only associate good things with the star. By shining in the far distance, they convey a feeling of hope and security. They are also understood as signposts. People can get lost in their sight and dream.

However, there are other interpretations of the symbol. According to a spiritual view, the star stands for a sign of light. In other cultures, for example with the Egyptians, they symbolize a higher power, because there is the belief that the dead live on in the stars.
Further meanings from the most diverse cultures are as follows:

  • love
  • Immortality and longevity, among other things as a sign of immutability
  • Children of the sun and moon
  • Search for truth and spiritual development

 

The shooting stars

When shooting stars flash in the night sky, it is something very special for most people. This peculiarity is not only due to the fact that they are rarely seen, but also because of their symbolic and spiritual meaning. The shooting stars are a symbol of hope for us, which we look for with excitement in the night sky.
In this section we will explain the meanings of the falling stars.

The scientific importance

From a scientific point of view, the origin and formation of the shooting stars has been clarified. These are dust particles that are left in space by comets and penetrate into the earth's atmosphere. During their flight they leave a strip of light that we perceive as a falling star. It has also been clarified why there are streams of falling stars several times a year.

The scientific meaning lies far behind the spiritual as well as symbolic meaning of the falling stars. It is not so important.

The spiritual meaning

Shooting stars are of great importance. Almost everyone knows the custom of quickly thinking of a wish when seeing a falling star, which should then come true. But only if you want it with your eyes closed and don't talk to anyone about it. It's an old superstition. But many people hold on to this idea.

It is not entirely clear where the custom comes from, but one possible explanation comes from the 15th century. In the past, people interpreted inexplicable events as divine signs. The shooting stars were explained by the fact that the angels in heaven cleaned the stars and so the glowing ends were created. The interpretation that the shooting stars are a lucky charm was based on the belief that one could watch the angels at work.
The comets were also seen as a sign of special events and the message of heavenly rulers, the gods. This is yet another way where the custom of making a wish comes from. People assumed that the gods wanted to grant them a wish. That's why they thought it to themselves as soon as they saw a falling star in the night sky.

But not in all cultures and at all times the comets were considered a happy event. Many people interpreted the heavenly signs as bad messengers and harbingers of bad events. For example, the Christians of the Middle East saw the shooting stars centuries ago as a sign of the struggle between the evil demons and the good angels. In the Middle Ages it was assumed that the comets were a divine reminder to the people. In Germany, too, there were other ways of looking at the shooting stars. So people assumed that they would bring death with them. This belief arose from the ancient idea that every human soul is connected to a star. If a star falls, someone has to die so that a soul can ascend to heaven.

In summary, the shooting stars were previously associated with fear, disastrous events and death. They were thought to be falling stars. However, today most people are fascinated by the heavenly phenomena and believe that their wish will come true.

The symbolic meaning

The symbolic meaning of the falling stars is also strongly influenced by the custom of wishing. So they are considered to be a bearer of hope. This is based on the fact that the shooting star appears quickly and suddenly. Just as quickly and suddenly you have to have a wish ready, because these are the rules of wish. The wish must be wished silently with closed eyes immediately after seeing the falling star. The wish that comes to mind is one that is current in our conscious or subconscious anyway. He is a high priority for us.

The celestial phenomena are also understood symbolically as good luck charms. Another aspect is freedom. We often feel it physically, but also mentally. Some people feel blissful inside, which is why the shooting star is also used as a magical symbol.
It becomes clear that we perceive it as a very positive event, which gives us hope and makes us believe that our wishes can come true if we only firmly believe in them.

The moon

The moon moves the seas and people. We are fascinated by it, we sometimes feel influenced by it and we admire its beauty in the night sky, which is constantly changing.
The moon is very important. In this section we want to explain to you exactly what this looks like.

The scientific importance

The moon affects the rotation of the earth. Due to its relative size, it has a stabilizing effect on the earth and slows it down. With its attraction it causes ebb and flow and sets whole bodies of water in motion. Because of these influences on nature, people believe that the power of the moon acts on them too. Often people complain about sleep problems. An inner restlessness and the female cycle are supposedly influenced by the phases of the moon. However, there is no scientific evidence for this.

The phases of the moon also affect the calendar. The lunar calendar is the lunar calendar, which is based on the phases and the course of the moon. The 12 lunar months become a lunar year.
Scientists and astronomy deal very intensively with the moon. In 1969, Neil Amstrong became the first person to walk on the moon. The research continues to be able to understand exactly the influence of the moon, the composition and all connections.

The spiritual meaning

The moon has strong spiritual and mythological meanings. In astrology it stands for the mirror to the soul as well as the nature of the human being. It is also placed in the context of the desire for contact and the human need for understanding and tenderness. In mythology, the moon is the female counterpart to the sun god.

The phases of the moon have very different meanings. Some people live their way of life according to them. For example, because of the energy that the moon is supposed to absorb and send to the earth. However, the actual effect is controversial. Nevertheless, the belief in the rhythm of the moon and the rules can ensure that people feel meaning in life and that they structure themselves.

Moon phaseimportance
new moonThe new moon gives new strength. It symbolizes a new beginning or spring. This is a very good time to get started.
increasing MoonThe waxing moon is symbolic of summer. This phase involves a problem, but also the solution and healing. It is a good time to face problems and make a change.
Full moonThe full moon represents the climax. It symbolizes autumn. This phase includes completion and realization. It is the ideal time to resolve conflicts and create visions.
waning moonThe waning moon represents impermanence. It symbolizes winter. This phase stands for grief, parting and separation. It's time to let go and put things in order

The symbolic meaning

In addition to a strong spiritual power, the moon also has enormous symbolic power. A distinction is made between the phases of the moon, but the moon as a whole symbol is also considered.

Overall, the moon symbolizes becoming and passing, as it is constantly changing its shape. Due to the periodic new creations, it also symbolizes time.
In western culture it is associated with the inner child, but also with the mother. It's about inwardness and receptivity. The moon shows our desires, needs and our emotional encounters.
In oriental culture, it is considered a symbol of home. The home represents the place where we can be who we are - with all the light sides and dark sides.
Femininity, inwardness and the unconscious as well as transience are the meanings of the moon in astrology, in addition to constant change.
The moon has a great symbolic strength and is generally of great importance in science, nature and humans.

There is a lot to see in the night sky. We have summarized the most important celestial bodies for you here.

Trivia: What Else You Should Know About the Night Sky

There is a lot more to say about the night sky. In the following we will answer frequently asked questions and explain even more things worth knowing.

Why is the night sky black or not black?

If you look closely at the night sky, you can see that it is not black at all. When your eyes have adjusted to the light conditions, you will see the sky in a dark blue or gray, but not deep black.

The reason for this is, on the one hand, the light of cities, houses and lanterns. They also light up the sky. So you could see that Hamburg is also visibly lighting up the sky, even if you are already looking at the night sky 20 km away. This shines in a light red. The reason for this is that many lights shine in a warm, yellow-orange-colored light. This emits red light waves, which are decisive for the color of the sky. With the change in light, from warm rays to cold LED light, the night sky will change again and be visible in a blue.

The night sky changes due to light pollution in a large city. A “red cloud” hangs over the city, which is why stars are difficult to see.

For observing the sky, it is therefore important that you are in a place that is as far away from lights and cities as possible. So the light pollution will not spoil your view of the stars.

Opportunities to observe the night sky

There are different ways in which you can observe the night sky. It all depends on what you want to see and how exactly. If it is enough for you to observe the stars, then it makes sense to look for a well-located place and observe with your bare eyes. However, if the view is to be more precise and if you want to delve deeper into the matter, a small piece of equipment is suitable for observation.
In the following we would like to introduce you to these observation options:

Observation with the naked eye

You can already see a lot in the night sky with your bare eyes: Stars, constellations, shooting stars, the moon, the Milky Way and, with the correct planetary position, even individual planets.

You look for a suitable place for this. It is important that this is as far away as possible from cities, large sources of lighting and other light fixtures, as these negatively affect the view. Make yourself comfortable and look at the sky. Try to orient yourself to the night sky. Look up and begin to see the first stars and constellations. Over time, your eyes will noticeably get used to the darkness. You can recognize this by the fact that, on the one hand, more and more stars are becoming visible in the sky and, on the other hand, that you can also better recognize objects in your environment. This is due to the dark adaptation.

Dark adaptation describes the adaptation of the eye to the dark environment. Our perception of brightness depends on the sensitivity of the receptors. Our pupils dilate so that more light can hit the retina. Visual acuity and color perception decrease. While the chopsticks are in use, the cones are relieved.

The process of dark adaptation takes about 30 minutes. It also takes that long until you have the best possible view and can see as many stars as possible in the night sky.
Observation with the naked eye is a good introduction to astronomy and already gives you a lot of great insights and views.

Observing with binoculars

Would you like to see more of the night sky and recognize objects that are invisible to the naked eye? Then binoculars are very suitable.

When looking at the sky, binoculars show a section enlarged. The magnification achieved is usually in the range of 5 x to 10 x. With the help, therefore, significantly more stars are visible than with the naked eye. The following rule of thumb applies: The larger the lens (the opening of the binoculars), the weaker stars are visible because more light can be collected. An objective with a diameter of 40 mm to 50 mm is well suited for observation.
You can observe the following phenomena in the sky with binoculars:

  • open star clusters
  • M44: A star cluster that can only be seen as a cluster of nebulae with the naked eye, but which dissolves into individual stars with binoculars.
  • M45 Pleiades: A star cluster that is already visible to the naked eye and consists of 7 stars. It is reminiscent of the little car.
  • Double stars: such as the double star Reiterlein in the Big Dipper or the main star of the constellation Leo
  • fog
  • Galaxies

Observation with a telescope

With a telescope you can observe many more objects in the night sky and see them in greater detail. But the decision for a suitable model is not at all easy. The choice can quickly become overwhelming, especially for beginners.

Optical telescopes are used to observe celestial bodies. These are devices that can be used to magnify distant objects and observe them with high resolution. So you can see many stars, planets, nebulae and star clusters that would never be seen with the naked eye and that cannot be viewed with binoculars.
There are different types of telescopes for observing the night sky: lens telescopes and reflector telescopes. There are also different eyepieces and additional accessories. Read yourself intensively into the topic in order to find a suitable telescope that exactly meets your needs.

You can find the best telescopes in our telescope test overview and our buying guide on this topic.

What else can be seen in the night sky?

In addition to stars, falling stars and the moon, you can observe many other things. You have definitely seen some of them before. You can easily see them with the naked eye, but you can also use other instruments to help.
These things can also be seen:

The planets in the night sky

Our planetary system includes 8 planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. But these are not always visible in the night sky.
If the planets take a favorable position for us in their orbit around the sun, we can see them well. The five planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are visible to us with the naked eye because of their brightness.

The planets revolve around the sun on fixed orbits. In the right constellation, we can see them from Earth.

However, they are not all visible in one night. You can easily recognize Mars by its red color, because it can also be recognized in the starry sky. In general, most planets shine brighter than stars. This is a good indication of how to discover planets in the sky.

The Milky Way in the night sky

The Milky Way is a galaxy to which the sun, earth and other planets also belong. It consists of hundreds of billions of stars and is shaped like a flat disk.
The Milky Way is visible to us in the sky all year round. It looks like a milky, long veil. This is due to the fact that it consists of a multitude of faintly shining stars, which we cannot, however, optically recognize with mere observation.

The satellites in the night sky

Satellites are artificial missiles in space. They orbit celestial bodies for scientific, commercial or military purposes.
The satellites can also be seen in the night sky. They look like stars that are moving. Many of them are visible to the naked eye and fascinate the observer. You can also see NASA's International Space Station, if you wait for the right time.
Due to the large number of satellites in space, the chance of being able to observe one of these missiles is high. Check the internet to see where and when they can be seen and look at the sky at that time.

Conclusion

Stars, shooting stars and the moon in the night sky are just a tiny part of astronomy.
Although these appearances are so often visible to us, they have a very special meaning. We start dreaming when we see the twinkling and shining starry sky above us. The shooting stars bring us hope and we think of our dearest wishes, speak them quietly to us and believe that a shining dust particle will bring us fulfillment.
In addition to dreaming and hope, the stars, falling stars and the moon are also strong symbols and have great significance. They are much more than just heavenly bodies. That is also the reason why people are so excited about them.
Look at the night sky and start dreaming!
