I was positively convinced that if i ran fast enough towards the moon, i would catch up to it.
The same occurs with shadows.
I spent hours trying to do this!
I never tried to do the same with the sun because, obviously, it was too hot and i could catch on fire!

top belief!

I used to believe that on the Fourth of July, when they did fireworks, that they were shooting rockets into space and blowing up stars. I would scream and cry because I was scared that the stars pieces would smush me.

After reading about the solar system one evening and looking at the pictures of each planet on its orbit (shown as an imaginary line), my cousins and I went out to look at the sky. Shortly thereafter we ran indoors to announce to the adults that we had actually seen some of these orbits up there! Well, apparently there were some searchlights being used in the area whose beams we saw moving across the heavens.

When I was a little girl, I used to believe that sometimes the Moon would break down. The only way NASA could tell it was broken was when it would "smile" at the Earth. NASA would send the astronauts way up there to fix it. Astronauts were REALLY smart because they were the only guys in the whole world who could fix the Moon! My dad went along with it!

As a small boy growing up in the space age I couldn't figure out why the astronauts never saw the angels as they travelled through the heavens

I used to believe that the sun & moon were the same size and that they both revolved around the earth.

I use to think that the sun and moon were one and the same. I thought in the day time, when it was on, we called it the sun, and at night, when it wasn't as bright, we called it the moon. This was until on a clear day i saw the moon and the sun were separate.

When I was about five years old, I used to think that the world was turned inside out. (i.e. the people walked around on the inside of the earth's crust, instead of the outside.) I also thought that the sun was a small ball in the very center of my inside-out world, about where the earth's core is.

i used to believe that the sky was the floor of heaven and it had holes in it. At night, heaven would switch its lights on and they would shine thru the holes and we would see stars...
Not really sure when that ended.

I never figured out that the moon rose and set like the sun until I was about 24 years old. I thought that when the sun went down, we could see the moon only because it was one of the brightest things in the sky. I remember looking up at the night sky several times one night and being really shaken that the moon kept moving.

"The stars that you see in the night sky are actually stars from the age of the dinosaurs, because the light is taking so long to reach the earth." I heard this when i was about six years old (on a tv show about supernovas probably), and i was very disturbed that our picture of the sky was so out of date. I had a sneaking suspicion that we were missing out on a lot of good explosions, and was firm in my convictions that if the outer universe was to explode we wouldn't know until we were extinct. i was a philosophical little girl even then.

One night when I was little, my Mom said "Oh, look at the full moon!" I asked "Are all the other moons hungry?"
