when i was 3 years old, i was driving to the store with my gradfather. it was kinda late at night and the moon was half full, i asked where the rest of the moon went, he then proceeded to tell me that cookie monster ate it. so from that point on to about the time i entered into school, where i learned better, i thought cookie monster ate the moon.

My brother and I used to believe that the Moon had invisible legs. When riding in the back seat with our parents, we were always amazed how the Moon was able to keep up and we could never see it's legs.

i used to believe that each country was its own "world" or "planet". but, i never thought about how one really got around between countries; i think i had a vague notion that aeroplanes were like spaceships.

When I was about 4 some one told me the moon was made of cheese and I believed it until my teenage years. Because I never really questiond it too much. I also never understood how the space men brought back moon rocks if it were made of cheese. So I conviced my self that part of the moon was made of rocks and part is made of cheese. I figured out the truth Around High school.

I used to believe that humans beings lived on every single planet of the solar system. When I found out we live on earth only I thought 'oh the universe isn't large at all!'

When I was about 7 or 8 I remember being out on the school field and looking up at the sky and wondering what it looked like from space. I had this image of a blue ball with all the oceans and continents, but with a big fried egg splattered across it. The yolk was the sun and the white was all the clouds.

The belief didn't last all that long but it was incredibly vivid and I still remember it now.

I still don't like fried egg very much either.

I used to think that the planets were really expensive airplanes, and they all had rings which were the decks to the plane. I couldn't wait until I was older and rich enough to travel on a planet. And I thought everyone would go out on the decks as we sailed through the sky, to have drinks and snacks.

I used to think the Earth rotated really really fast and that we just didn't notice because of our atmosphere. I thought that's how gravity worked too - that we were stuck to the ground because of the spinning

Shortly after I got my first pair of glasses (I was 7), I woke up at night and looked out the window to see the night sky FILLED with big luminous globes of light. I was convinced it was an alien invasion until I put my glasses on to see better and realized they were stars.

When I was very young, about 3 years old I thought the sun and the moon were different sides of the same object. I guess I never noticed that sometimes they were in the sky at the same time.

My friend believed that when she looked at the moon, she would see Australia, because the moon was just the mirror image of the earth.

Tell 10 years old I really believed that the moon was made of cheese, and that it is very easy to get there. I also believed that if you jump high enough, you can fly. I had great moments jumping and thinking that, I still remember the feeling of almost flying, great imagination can make you feel wonderful sometimes-

When I was 3 I had my own explanation about day and night: The earth was a tinny ball into a giant's mouth. When the giant's was yawned, the light was coming into his mouth and it was day, otherwise it was night !
