How often can you see a shooting star?

I asked a few of my friends and their answers ranged from “every 2-3 days” to “once every 6 months?”

But according to “Ask an astronomer” at Cornell university the correct answer is: “when stargazing you can expect to see a shooting star every 10 to 15 minutes.”

The key words here are “when stargazing”.

The reason most of us do not see more shooting stars is simply because we do not spend enough time focusing on the night sky.

If we want to see more shooting stars we should.

And if we want to experience more magical moments with our children we should spend more time focused on them.

Because just like a shooting star is gone in a blink of an eye, so are those magical parenting moments.

But if you pay attention you can catch them and cherish them forever.

Those “Shooting Star Parenting Moments” will rain over you when you decide to focus on your child.

And suddenly something as seemingly mundane as cutting your child’s nails will become unforgettable.

Once you get hooked on “Childgazing” you very likely will feel an urge to spend more time being there in the moment with your child.
