I used to think that the moon was just a reflection of Earth. I used to stand at my window at night and wave upwards, thinking that my mirror-image would be waving back down at me.

I used to believe that crescent moons were the bits of fingernail I bit off my thumb that had inexplicably floated into the sky, and glowed there to remind me not to bite my nails.

My brothers told me that the moon would become a crescent because the army was shooting at it. (we were army-brats)

My younger brother used to be afraid of shooting stars. This is because he thought that if you eyed a shooting star, it would actually shoot you with a gun!

I used to think that all the planets looked like what they were named after. Mars looked like a giant candy bar, Pluto was a cartoon dog, etc. Some were tough, like Saturn, (which I eventually figured out looked like a car). You can imagine what Uranus looked like...

When I was young, I thought that the chirping sound that we always heard outside at night was the sound of the stars twinkling. Only later I found out it was really crickets chirping.

My 3 year old niece wanted to know what color her swing set was. She was told it had been red but that the sun faded it out. She tells the sun every day that her favorite color is purple in the belief that the sun will change it to that color.

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!

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.
