my friend had a teacher who was convinced that the world really was flat, and for a while he had her convinced too! until she figured out that, logically, that can't really be true what with the orbits around the sun, and such

I believed the sun and the moon were the same thing, just rotated to change from day to night.

I used to believe that the stars sang. When they came out in the evening, the chirping would begin; first one star, then two, then a whole host of them, chirping to different rythms, then for one breathtaking moment, singing in unison. The songs used to have words in my head, little repeated phrases like "flower pretty" or "Standard Oil." (I remember being amazed that the stars knew my Daddy was a pilot for Standard Oil. How did they know that?)

I was living in California. Later I found out the sounds I was hearing were made by crickets that came out to chirp as the sun set. I still cherish the sound of crickets today.

As a rather precocious youngster, I had read in an illustrated astronomy book that in 4 billion years or so the Sun would red giant and swallow up the Earth. Since I didn't really understand how much time 4 billion years is, I thought this could happen any day. I had nightmares for months, and my mom didn't believe that that was the reason for them (not something normal kids have).

I used to think that when the crickets chirped at night, it was the stars making that noise because when I looked at the stars, they neemed to flicker and it corresponded with the chirping of the crickets...sometimes when I listen to the crickets now, I still get the image in my mind of the starts glowing and flickering.

People told me that the Big Red Spot (storm) on Jupiter was big enough to fit 100 earths into it.

For years after I was scared that the earth would get sucked inside Jupiter.

When I was in third grade, I read in a science book that someday the sun would become a nova. I must have figured "someday" was imminent because would I lay awake night after night wishing that the sun would not explode and incinerate the Earth. The sun seems to be holding together so far...

I used to think the CareBears lived on the moon, and the blackish spots (actually craters) were where the CareALot cities were.

I used to believe that the stars are actually star-shaped (like a pentagram or the star of david), and they only seemed dotlike since they are so far away.
