I used to believe that the Moon sometimes came out in the day because it was jealous that the Sun was getting seen by all the awake people all day.
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 remember when I was very young, I used to beleive the moon would make you crazy, probably an influence from certain old werewolf movies...
I remember having terrible nightmares of me being outside at night, and the moon coming down to get me!
I used to believe that the moon was actually America. My mum told me it was a long way away and you had to get a plane there, which went stright up!
As a child, I thought that the sun was a 'big ball of fire'.
I wondered why the 'fire' wouldn't go out permanently when the sun 'fell' into the sea every evening.
And if the sun DID fall into the sea, why was the sea not the source of fried fish ?
This belief came from living on the sea front :)
When I was about 6, I heard about how the Earth is eventually going to be swallowed up by the Sun. For some reason I became obsessed with this and even though I knew it wasn't going to happen for a billion years or so - I still spent about 6 months in a state of perpetual panic.
When I was younger, my dad told me that when the moon was yellow it meant that it didn't drink enough milk and it was sick. He said that when it was white, the moon drank a lot of milk and it was healthy.
I used to believe that if I threw hard enough, I could get a penny to land on the moon, after watching something about some fake story on a wedding ring being found on the moon. So I'd throw money up to the sky. The coins i couldn't find anymore I assumed made it.
I believed that the sun and the moon were two different sides of the same thing, with the sun side showing during the day, and the moon side during the night.
When I was a little girl, going outside at night was always something that filled me with awe because I believed that the sound of crickets was the sound of the stars twinkling
I thought the spectral class of stars (OBAFGKM) stood for: O- Awesome (I couldn't spell very well) B- Beautiful, A- Amazing, F- Fantastic, G- Good, K- Kool, and M- Mediocre
I used to belive that if you travelled up the outer space, you would in the end come up from the water at a beach in annother universe
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.
i used to believe that the moon was the sun at night, and still have some trouble coming to terms with the fact that it isnt.
I believed that if you shone a flashlight at the sun for eight minutes, that the sun would blow up and all life on earth would be extinguished.
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 brothers told me that the moon would become a crescent because the army was shooting at it. (we were army-brats)
I used to believe that the moon was nothing more than the sun that God put a 'moon pocket' on. The reason why we could only see one side of it was because the zipper was on the other side.
When I was in science class, they said the earth rotates on an imaginary line called the axis. I didn't know what imaginary is, so I thought at the north and south pole, there really was a big pole coming out of the ground. I wanted to go see it!
When my mother was little she believed that night was the result of the world being put inside a paper bag so everyone could go to sleep. The stars and the moon was the outside light shining through the air holes.
