Star Gazing

Orion Constellation Embroidery Hoop Art by Ten Feet Off Beale

Even since I was a kid, I've loved looking at the stars. (Fun fact, I went to Space Camp - but that's a story for another time) There's nothing quite like a clear sky full of stars. 

I grew up not too far from New York City so even on clear nights, stars were a bit harder to see because of all the city lights. I went on a church trip to middle of nowhere West Virginia once in high school and vividly remember how amazing the sky was. I couldn't believe how many hundreds of stars I could see. We all sat there in awe counting the shooting stars. I loved it. Truly something amazing.

  1. I am so jealous! I always wanted to go to space camp as a kid and I still love astronomy. I would love to read about your experience!

  2. I grew up in San Diego, and so it wasn't tooo hard to see the stars. But I definitely remember going out to remote campsites and realizing that the sky looked SO much different when it was completely clear. So beautiful :)

  3. Looks incredible! I love it!

  4. When I was a kid I was OBSESSED with Space Camp! I wanted to go so badly that when NASA announced a writing contest for students when I was in the 6th grade I entered and when I won I was so excited because I was sure that the prize would be a trip to Space Camp. Nope, it was a shower radio... a shower freaking radio! I still haven't forgiven NASA.

  5. I wanted to go to Space Camp when I was little! I'm kind of jealous now. Anyway, I love your Orion embroidery hoop art! So cute!

  6. That is so fun! I love looking at the stars and trying to figure out the constellations! I'm not very good at it, but it's still fun!
