Tales from the Skies

We have gazed upward to the heavens, our outstretched fingers framing an imaginary telescope. We wonder about gods and heroes from a distant past, and ask ourselves why our celestial home seems so far away. At day, or at night, we unceasingly face the tranquil zenith above us...

...and dream.

Here are sky tales, or stories that involve gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines, the sky, the sun, moon and stars, and all celestial beings that populate our overhead canopy.
