It's interesting to think that, when you look up at the night sky at a specific star, two thousand miles away someone could be looking up at that same star, amirite?

It's equally interesting to think that there could be a life-sustaining planet orbiting that star, with someone on it looking back at our star and considering the exact same thing.

Although I doubt that if there were a life-sustaining planet so far away, that it would have species so similar to humans. It could be all-hippo, and so no one would even wonder about what stars are.

It depends on what the planet is made of. If it had a very similar composition to ours, then evolution could have created creatures with intelligent thought like us. Im not saying it definately would have, but it's possible, and fun to think about.

No, I don't think humans are very natural. Why would nature create such a beast that destroys practically everything and everyone (including his own kind). Somewhere along the line humans got ruined by some mistake.

Besides, evolution is completely random, so it's nearly impossible for a world evolved on its own to share such a specific characteristic as interest in astronomy. I mean, of all the species just on THIS planet we're the only ones who think about it, so why would you think a whole another giant planet of completely irrelevant species would have it?

Well I don't whole heartedly believe it, but i'm saying it could happen. Improbable doesn't necessarily mean impossible.

That reminds me of Joe Dirt. Lol except he was looking at the moon. Same idea though.

oh, sorry, im not familiar with miles.

wouldnt it be day time half way around the world, so seeing stars would be highly improbable?

@de_licious wouldnt it be day time half way around the world, so seeing stars would be highly improbable?

I wouldn't think so. I live in California, and Florida is roughly 2000 miles away. They are 4 hours ahead of us. So if I can see the stars at 9 pm, they can see the same stars at 1 am.
