I used to believe that the stars were holes in the roof of the world, and the light shining through the holes was the light from heaven.
I have no idea why, but I thought that the constellation Orion would shoot us with arrows when he was in the sky. We were safe as long as we were in a building or vehicle; but when we got out of the car to go into our house, it was risky. I used to anxiously watch the stars whilst my dad unlocked the door, hoping we'd get inside in time.
I was born in 1967 and my Dad worked on the Saturn V so I remember hearing all about how man landed on the moon. For many years, when people would talk about seeing the "man in the moon" I would look really hard to see his silouette sticking off the side!
until i was 7 or 8, i believed i could see the earth spinning on its axis. i eventually learned it was just the clouds moving, and was utterly devastated.
I used to think that the moon was the sun when it was sad. So, whenever night came, I would feel bad for the moon, because I thought it was sad or scared!
When I was a child, I used to believe that humans had visited and lived on every planet in the solar system except Jupiter. I wonder-why not Jupiter?
Once, I was laying on my driveway with my sister and friend at night just looking at the stars and I got a good idea. I told my sister that we were getting tans, and if you layed there long enough you could get really tan. She believed me, and I finally set her straight last year.
I used to believe that the moon could make make beautiful. I'd lay on a tiny little part of my bed where the moonlight was and go to sleep with the moonlight on me. PS It didn't work.
When i was litttle i used to believe that if a had a long enough ladder a could touch the sky.
We thought the moon was made of cheese and it was our dream to eat it
When i was about 4 years old i used to think the moon seemed to stay in the same place because god was holding the moon on a chain making it stay in the same place.. i know its sounds dumb
And when I was little I believed that the Moon was really the Earth and there no Moon at all. My mom then confronted me with this question: if that is the Earth, and there is no moon, what are we standing on? I patiently explained to her that there is a huge ziplock baggy hanging from the moon with dirt in it -- and that is what we were standing on.
I used to think that the moon wasn't the moon but was just a reflection of the earth. When people told me 'There's the moon' I would think to myself 'You're crazy'
I used to think that the moon had someone inside it, driving it. It's how I explained the fact that the moon moved along with the car as we drove.
I knew Earth was round, but I thought that we lived inside the Earth. I was so confused at how the space shuttle could get though the sky. The day the shuttle took off I searched the sky for the hole that it must have left.
i used to think the sun was a giant fireball like the ones from the mario brothers throw except a big one.
I grew up with my grandparents close to an Air Force Base, and I loved to watch the planes flying in the sky. I thought (until I was 9) that the jet trail behind the planes was actually where the planes were scratching the sky. When I started learning about the earth's atmoshpere in school I figured out the sky wasn't flat after all, but I still think about plans scratching the sky when I see one.
When I was about 7 year old, I used to believe that stars were actually made of glass and could break if meteor hit them. Then one night I found a piece of clear plastic just behind my home door, and I was absolutely sure that I had just found a piece of a star...The piece was included to my "treasure chest" for a long time but I lost it at some point.
A billboard sign read: Moonshine kills.
I thought being caught outside by the moon would kill me. Humph.
The moon was actually either a sugar cookie or a banana, depending on the time of the month.
