There are two trillion galaxies. Our galaxy contains a mere four hundred billion stars.
The Milky Way is 100,000 light years across. A really big galaxy can be 1500,000 light years across.
We might be the only life in the universe. The chances are that slim.
This planet might have the only eyes in existence to ever witness the wonder of the dance of stars.
The life of the planet Earth is a blink in eternity – the period of life a flicker – a human life hardly registering in the enormity of space and time.
When the last eyes are gone there will be nothing to register the most wondrous panorama.
I think we ought to make the best of it while we can. We’ll be a long time gone.
A dream in a moment of eternity
Possessing the eyes to see.
A brief blossoming
And then back
To the endless black.
A splendour unseen
As galaxies spin
In a universe
