Little Sparkels in the Night Sky

The stars we see in the night sky are tens of thousands of light years away, which are the distances beyond our imagination. The lights that stars emit travel the space, and eventually, reach our eyes. Throughout history, people have been fascinated by the beauty of the night sky. The mystery of the unknown worlds captures the imagination. What people imagine and think when they view the night sky through astronomical telescopes depends on the person's knowledge, experience, interest, etc. But, astronomical telescopes are for anyone who is curious about the world of astronomy.
