Did you know.................... #15

Did you know................................. the closest star to earth besides our Sun, which is 93 million miles away by the way, is Proxima Centauri.  Do you want to guess how far Proxima Centauri (closest star to earth besides the sun) is away from the earth?  It is about 4.24 light years away, which converted to miles is approximately 23.5 trillion miles.  So, the nearest star to our planet is 23.5 trillion miles.  Wow!

I actually did know that! But the only reason I do know that is because I took Astronomy last semester. :P

I saw one fall last night. Do you think it's the one you're talking about. Maybe you better check if it's still there :)

Anonymous Uncle Mark or Dad,
Maybe it is the star that fell. Who knows? I do know one thing for sure. God does. :)

Me,
No problem. I was glad to be able to expand your knowledge. :)

May,
I also found that out by taking Astronomy. It is pretty neat. :)

Sarah,
Amen! He is awesome and so great. Beyond our own comprehension. :)

The heavens declare the glory of God;And the firmament shows His handiwork. Psalm 19:1

This is my first visit to your blog and enjoyed reading your posts especially the one on predestination/free will. I sure do not understand it, but I do also believe both.

God bless,
Ken
