While the pizzas were cooking we watched the new Emma Hale Smith movie. It was fantastic. We stopped halfway through to eat the pizzas and then finished watching the movie. After dessert, Mel took us outside for some star gazing.
Mel first explained the Aboriginal story behind the stars, then the scientific make-up of stars and then finished off by reading how the stars were formed out of the book of Genesis. She then showed us we can use the stars to find south during the night. It was fascinating as I had no idea where I would be at night, not having the sun to rely on, and now next time I get lost in the bush, I can find my way out. :) You should have seen the torch Mel had. I have never seen one so big. It had like 15million candle wattage.
Kit had put out some flames on sticks outside to help set the mood. It was very lovely. We jsut needed some marshmellows to roast and we would have been set.
Look at these two cheeky second cousins Lachlan and Jonty Monty.
To spend some time star gazing really puts things into perspective and I am so glad we don't live in a smoggy built-up city where it would be almost impossible to see the stars. Thankyou too Kit for hosting us at your lovely home.
