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.

I thought that if I could ever travel into outer space, I would take a pair of pliers with me, to collect stars. Mommy did say they were too hot to touch.

I used to beleive that the moon was earth and I could never understand how we could be standing on earth and also be seeing the earth in the sky. I was just a little confused. =) age 3-6

When I was about 4 or 5 or so, on the way back home from school, I'd quite often stare at the sun for ages, because I thought it was a hole in the sky (if you really stare at it, it looks that way). I was a stupid child in some respects, and I wear glasses to this day - I'll probably always wonder if the two things are linked.

I used to believe that when you wished upon a star ... your wish would come true. Like one time I wished for a "My little pony" . The next morning I was sad to find my wish hadnt come true .

When I was younger I used to believe that spinning a globe is what caused the earth to spin. I was always very cautious not to let myself of anyone make it spin too fast- otherwise we'd all get dizzy and maybe fall off. I guess I had a lot of faith that no one else was spinning their globe too fast either!

My sister and I believed that we lived inside the earth and that when they sent shuttles into space someone would have to go up on a giant ladder to patch the hole in the sky.

For a time as a child, I was totally convinced that I had been to a city on the planet Neptune. The clearest memory I had of the place was how at each end of the main street, atop a pole like a telephone pole, there was an array of horns, resembling loudspeakers like I'd seen at football stadiums. I wondered what those horns were for. I never heard any sound come from them.

I used to believe the shadows on the moon were actually spacemen casting shadows on the ground.

I thought the moon was Alaska when I was little after seeing a documentary about the State and how cold and snowy it was all the time. I just couldn't figure out why it moved around so much.

When I was quite young I used to believe that stars really had five points, and that a falling star could fall out of the sky and stab me. I was terrified of going outside at night for fear of being impaled by such a star.

I used to believe that the moon was a street light that had come off its stalk and was floating around like a balloon in the sky. This explained why the moon shifted around so much in the sky.

My aunt has told me that when I was a young child she mentioned something to me about the crickets chirping at night. I was astounded. Apparently I said to her, "Oh. I always thought that was the stars!"

I used to believe that stars chirped because they would twinkle simultaneously to crickets chirping
