Excerpt from Star-Gazer's Hand-Book: A Brief Guide for Amateur Students of Astronomy
The history and the destiny of the heavenly bodies We cannot know in this life, but we may know something of their immense distances from us and from one another, and of the laws that govern them in their sublime, silent revolutions through eternal space. As we gaze into the deep, measureless heavens and note the suns and worlds in their unceasing motions through the boundless depths of space, we feel as at no other time the meaning of the Psalmist's words, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty.
