I used to think that we lived in the center of the earth, and the blue sky was actually a protective covering with a light outside it so we could all see. Don't ask.

I thought the moon was evil and it's rays would try to kill me every night. So of course I outsmarted it by blocking the moonlight every day with my curtains. But the moon would begin to eat away at the curtains and reach me so I made sure I was properly covered. By the time the moonlight reached me, it would be morning and the sun would save me.

When i was little I truly believed that all things were alive.. the sun would go to bed in the evening and be tucked in by a big warm Sun mother. I then imagined the moon waking up, brushing its teeth and having breakfast before beginning the night. I was sure the moon was a nocturnal creature and was shocked when I first saw it in the daylight. From time to time I still look up and laugh out loud to myself.

About the time I was in pre-school, the family was riding in the car as we were moving cross country from the east coast to the west coast. On one of those days, as it passed into the night, I asked my mom what happens to the Sun after it goes down for the night. She asked me what I thought happened and I told her that after the Sun goes down it seperates into a bunch of tiny specks and becomes the stars and that by morning they gather back together into the Sun.

She responded, "That's exactly what happens."

I believed it for the next several years.

O used to think that we lived INSIDE the world; that the blue sky was the inside of a big hollow ball. I knew that "space" was all black and full of stars, and try as they might, my parents could not convince me that the blue sky was caused by the sunlight coming through a waterbased atmosphere. Come to think of it, that still kinda sounds bunky to me. :) And don't even asked me how I thought we GOT to outer space. I think I thought we launched rockets out little windows or something. It was a while before it clicked.

When my parents told me about the man on the moon I not only believed in him but actually thought I could see him and the craters I could see were what I reconned to be his face, They are a bit hazy and I sometimes thought I was getting him mad as it changed. I used to say mean things to the moon and decided I didn't like him.

When I was little I used to think of the night sky as a BIG blanket and the moon and stars where holes in the blanket and if you looked real close through the holes they called stars you could see shadowy figures going by.

I used to believe that beyond the visible limits of the sky there is a garden of wonders.In that garden everything good(chocolates,toffies etc) were available in limitless quantity.You had to take a rocket to reach that pIace.I thought that all the space explorers like Yuri Gagarin et all actually went to explore that garden & take a munch at the goodies.

I used to think that whenever there was an eclipse and it was all over the news, the world was actually going to end. And I always was reliefed when it didn't and said that maybe next time they would. Nobody took the time to explain me that it was only temporary,

I used to think that stars are made by God for children to stop crying, to enjoy and they are our toys to make us happy and they do not twinkle but wave to us.

When i was a little kid, i lived in Germany, and i always thought the moon as the other side of the Earth. Everyone would always talk about the US, and that's where i thought it was. Plus we learned about landing on the moon in school, and i really had no clear understanding of flying. Pretty stupid when i look back on it.
