Do you wish on a shooting star?
I saw a 'falling star' tonight, also referred to as a 'shooting star', during my evening walk. It's considered lucky to make a wish before it burns out. It's been a long time since I've last seen one. Have you ever seen a shooting star, and if so, do you consider it lucky? Do you make a wish on it?
I sure do. Love seeing falling stars and just can't help wishing on them.
This one tonight was the first I've seen in a long time. It was 'magical'.
Yes I have seen shooting star many a time.
Yes I do consider it lucky so far.
I use to make a wish on it and surprisingly enough it always comes to be true but now do not ask me what were they...LOL
LOL Thanks for your response, I couldn't tell you what mine were from long ago, either.
Guns don't kill people...shooting stars do.
...Governments own shooting stars...but nobody seems intelligent enough to realize shooting stars kill people, and it is murder or manslaughter regardless.
Outlawing shooting stars ...is a retarded notions. Criminals will find stars that shoot regardless.
I'm told, however, the price of ammunition for shooting stars is rising very rapidly....and being stockpiled by the IRS.
Thanks for being interested enough to comment here, Wesman. You have a very different perspective of shooting stars. Best wishes to you.
Very cool! Thanks for adding your comment.
I don't think I have ever seen a shooting star, but I still make my wishes when I see a full moon on the night sky, although I saw that moon in the morning sky instead and it felt just as good, as I feel very happy!
Beautiful. I think a Carolina moon, hanging low in the sky, is one of the best moons I've seen!
I try to when i can catch it!! loll. and so far, I have seen the most shooting stars in the East Himalayas of INDIA!!
Singapore is just too bright for me to see any of them.
That's awesome, Sjilifed. Yes, the stars aren't too bright in the city lights. Out in the country, where I live, there are tons of stars, but only this one shooting star I 'caught', lol
Lucky you to see the stars! Not even squinting helps in the cities. haha.
No...I don't. If I need something...I find it much more profitable to go to my Heavenly Father in prayer. :0)
Hi CJ Thanks for responding to my question. Many blessings...
I can't remember ever seeing one, but I do think they are lucky. I believe around the build up of the full moon to the actual full moon is a very lucky and magical time. Great question. Maybe I should google when the next shooting star will appear. I wonder if it is only a certain time of year that one could see a shooting star?
Hi moneyfairy-when I googled it I discovered they aren't really stars at all, but meteorites. How's that for a bummer-I prefer to live in my fantasy world re: the celestial heavens, and believe, (erroneously) that they are stars.
Well Denise I choose to believe in the magic as well.....the scientific is too boring
Yes, i usually do. In Northern Idaho the sky is very clear and the stars are plastered across the sky. And remember seeing a bunch of cool "shooting stars". I think these shooting stars are really comets though. Still cool to wish on though. I also heard humans are share many similarities to stars, atomically and chemically.
Thanks for commenting. Yes, they are comets, or meteorite showers. Lucky you-clear skies full of stars... Here in Carolina the moon and stars are awesome! Best wishes to you.
Like a little kid! I squeeze my eyes shut and whisper under my breath. And I don't tell anyone what I wished for! Awesome question!
Thanks for sharing your special way of wishing on a shooting star.
I never see shooting stars. My husband points them out, but in the amount of time it takes for me to focus my eyes on the sky, they're gone. If I did see one though, I wouldn't make any wishes. I would be thrilled to finally catch sight of one. I do love the "Star Light, Star Bright" rhyme.
I don't see shooting stars very often, but they are awesome. Thanks for commenting.
Love seeing shooting stars...otherwise known as meteors. Often forget to wish on them, but have enjoyed watching a number of showers with my family over the years...and that has been wonderful. :0)

Many of us met HP by chance. Many of us came here looking for a way to earn and many of us came to express ourselves. For me it was a mixture of both.I wanted to make money with the thing I love to do the best...writing. However, there are some things I wish I knew back then. What is the one thing...

Has anyone seen a rainbow like this before?I think that double rainbows are rare. I took this picture last summer and was mesmerized by the dome look it created.
