Trip to the Sun

When I was seven my dad took me on a trip to the Sun. It took a little while to get there. It’s amazing how apt the name Space is.

We spent our travel time looking for constellations. We listened to all my dad’s and my 8 Tracks about twenty times each. We stopped off at Venus and Mercury for day trips.

The Sun was pretty amazing. At first it was overwhelming to look at and I had to shut my eyes for a while. And then I was able to squint for a little bit. Pretty soon I looked at it with eyes wide open. It was better than the Grand Canyon because there were these amazing swirls and balls of fire and they were changing their shape every second.

It was similar to the ocean if it was lit from within and it exploded a lot.
