"For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream." - Vincent Van Gogh
I see a boy who has been bringing home stacks of astronomy books from the library.
I see a teacher who is adding fire to that passion by lending him a telecope.
I see the moon, bigger and brighter and closer than i can ever remember seeing it.
I see the book he's been poring over brought to life through the lens of that telescope.
I see star charts printed out and evening plans to escape the lights of the city.
I see us awake at 2am for a lunar eclipse.
I see a boy with a dream, and I wonder where it will take him.
(The photos of the moon in this post were shot w/ my iPhone 5s through the eyepiece of the telescope.)
