Strasenburg Planetarium – Love

Strasenburg Planetarium - Rochester, NY

The Daily Prompt asked the question, on Valentine’s Day, “Remember your first crush? Think about that very first object of your affection.”

My first love — Space, the Final Frontier

Maybe it’s a strange love, but honestly, I’m a geek gal from way back. Fascinated by Mr. Spock on Star Trek when I was middle school, hanging out with a Boyscouting program viewing stars and programming computers in high school, is it too surprising that science and star made my heart beat faster?

So, when I thought about it, my first real crush/love was this building…or, more accurately…what lay inside.

Meet Carl.

Carl, my first love!

The star projector.

I remember lingering behind once the crowds had filed out. Sometimes my family would have to come looking for me. Usually, I would be asking questions about how it worked from the projectionist or staff member. If I was really lucky, there would be guest speaker…a local weatherman or university astronomer…swoon!

Maybe I should’ve been one myself…but, my other love was computers. Need I say more?

Daily Prompt: It’s Friday, I’m in Love
