What do you see? You are wasting your time with this.

"What you see, what are you watching? What are you looking for? Did you see the UFOs? What you resolve by that?' You are wasting your time. You're repeating the same images on your blog. Aren't you bored to see always the same thing? If you've seen the Moon one time, what's the point to look at it several times? ". These are the words which I have been told by those around me, and who with which i'm used to hear.

I don't want to look like it is a big a problem for me what I wrote above. But now, being in a isolated area a few days, where I can quietly reflect on my life, I thought about writing something about the ignorance of people.

I find useless some passions some people put into practice too. But if I don't like what they do, I would not demoralize, or discourage them. Why? The answer, I challenge you to give it alone.

If we take for the example the Moon When we talk about it, we can't think to something that is in fashion, or was something fashionable. The Moon was and always will be the same. Its characteristics are always the same. That's why I think people do not appreciate it. In their minds, the Moon is in the sky, always the same. What could be interesting about it, even looking to it through a telescope, over and over? It's a waste of time, they believe. Same thing they think on observational astronomy in general. Well, there is something interesting in observation. You see the same thing over and over, but always see that astronomical object different. On some evenings, the atmosphere is clear, sometimes it is full of dust or fog; the Sun spots on the surface of the Sun are famous, and they are in constant motion; the Moon has its phases: in some nights some craters have different aspects as they had two nights ago, because sunlight lits on them at different angles all the time. Besides all this, we have astronomical events like eclipses of the Sun and Moon, occultations, conjunctions of planets, comets and asteroids that pass through our neighborhood.

As you can see, the world of astronomy is not as static and you think, and if you practice astrophotographythere is the competition with yourself and with others who share the same passion.
