The Christian Expo has always been fun. There were three stages with different bands that played. There were plenty of food booths and exhibits.
One of those exhibits was a Christian astronomy club called Stars For Jesus. I was intrigued by it because I have never seen it at the expo before. It gave me a chance to ask a question about something I wanted to understand.
As I walked up to the booth a blond harried women that had a black t shirt on that had stars on it and the planet Saturn. She looked at me and made eye contact and said, "Hi, my name is Sarah. Do you have any questions?"
"Hey Sarah, I am Ken. Is this the first year you have been here?"
She looked at me and gave a big smile, "Yes it is."
"Tell me about your club? Asked Ken.
"Were a Christian based astronomy group that teaches astronomy from a Christian perspective."
"Wow, that is interesting," as Ken's face beamed with excitement.
He put hand on his chin and rubbed it as if he gave some thought as to what he was about to ask, "I wonder if you could help me figure out something?"
"OK," as Sarah looked into Ken's eyes and wanted to show that she was listening.
"I was on an airplane recently we were up at about forty thousand feet. I noticed that the blue ski had a darker shade of blue. Why is that?" Ken pondered.
She had an intent look on her face, and listened carefully to every word I said, "That is a good question. The reason the sky was a darker blue is you are running out of atmosphere. The higher you go the darker it will get. If you were to keep going up it would turn to black and you would be going to outer space."
"Hmmm, that was interesting".
Sarah chimed in again, "The Lord put an atmosphere here on earth to protect us from the dangers of outer space."
"Thank you, I learned something today. I won't take any more of your time."
Sara face light up again, "Oh, no problem, I hope that you enjoy the rest of the expo."
Ken walked away.
