Do you like to watch the sky? How often? Why?
Yes, I love watching the sky. It really sets my mind at ease to just sit on my apartment balcony and watch the colors change. I don’t have a ton of free time since I’m usually tied up with work and study, but every so often I sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view.
Do you prefer the sky in the morning or at night?
Um…I definitely prefer the sky at night. I think sunrises are gorgeous, but at night the stars come out and you can even pick out constellations. It really takes my breath away to see the night sky. It’s just so beautiful to look at.
Is there a good place to look at the sky where you live?
Well, I live in the city, so things are pretty crowded. But you know, I live in an apartment with a balcony, so luckily for me I can go out and look whenever I have the chance. Sometimes the view isn’t great if it’s cloudy, but I can at least see past the buildings.
Do you know anything about stars or planets?
Well, I can’t say I know a lot about astronomy, but I still remember some things about the solar system that my physics teacher taught me. Like the sun is the nearest star to u s and there are nine planets in the solar system, including the earth. Back then Pluto hadn’t been washed out of the solar system.
Does your school have courses about stars and planets?
Yes, it does! I think those kinds of courses are super interesting. Astronomy is a cool subject for sure. I’ve never taken those courses, but I have friends who are interested in that kind of thing. They say that the courses are super eye-opening. Who knows, maybe I’ll take one someday.
Can you see the moon and stars at night where you live?
Well, since I live in the city, there’s a ton of light pollution in the sky. So sometimes that makes it hard to see the stars. But you can usually see the moon, which is really nice. I love looking at the night sky and admiring the view; it really helps me wind down.
