After watching the discovery channel about space, stars and planets, and one star called Sirius stuck in my mind, probably because it’s the brightest star in our solar system.
I’ve always been fascinated with space but never have I really looked up and actually known what I’m looking at besides the obvious ones. I downloaded an iPhone app called Night Sky which works by helping you identify stars, satellites and planets.
So last night I went outdoors equipped with night sky app and aimed It into the sky, I knew it was a part of Orion so it wasn’t hard to spot. It was exciting to find Sirius, a star I’ve never noticed before but the one of the most fascinating things I’ve ever seen.
What makes it even more special is the colours it lets off, blue, red and white, it’s an incredible thing to see.
I’m now an official space nerd.
