Lost in a galaxy in a forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more planets than people. (Carl Sagan - Words from documentary 'Cosmos')

Why in the night sky are the lights hung? Why is the Earth Moving around the Sun? (Robin Pecknold - Lyrics from a song called 'Blue Spotted Tail' by band Fleet Foxes) ‍
