The winners
See who won our 1131st daily question below.

  1. lissette - My favorite thing in the night sky is When lightning ⚡ is a beautiful nature show
  2. Crizzy - Lots of people give me a sceptical look when I describe one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in the night sky and that was a Moonbow – created just like a rainbow but from the light of the moon instead of the sun. The colours were quite dilute compared with the daytime version but still distinguishable.
  3. Barbara Comeaux – Meteor showers. My birthday is always celebrated with the Perseid meteor shower in August, and I love that the night sky sends me my own shooting stars to make my birthday wishes on!
  4. Jessica P. – I love absolutely everything about the night sky. It’s simply amazing to know no matter how many billions of people and different types of people there are in the world, we all look up and see the same thing, maybe from a slightly different angle, but the same thing none the less. We all have at least that in common. It’s one of the few things in the world that brings us all together somehow.
  5. Cynthia Turner – MY favorite thing is what I saw a few days ago, the two planets so close to each other you could see the star of bethlehem. It was magical.
  6. Nicole C – The Moon in any phase. The other night on my way home from work there was a “blood moon.” It was beautiful and amazing. The sky, whether dark or light, reminds me that everything and everyone is small. When I feel bad, I just need to take the power back from the undeserving place I gave it to.
  7. JaneS3 – Remember the Comet Hale-Bopp? I remember the group of cult members (30 some?) who were convinced that their souls could travel via this comet to another level of existence. They were found dead in a home all dressed identically. My husband and I were driving home discussing going to the shore to see if we could see the comet. I asked my husband where it would be in the sky — he thought for a moment and pointed out the front windshield slightly towards the left, and THERE IT WAS! It was visable for the entire trip to the house. An incredible site and the brightest comet I’ll see in my lifetime.
  8. DM - A full moon on a clear night always makes me feel closer to Dustin. I know he is up there somewhere.
  9. michele – My grandmother use to tell me, that when you look at the stars it is your loved one looking down on you. So until this day in my heart , I still want to believe that.
  10. Christine Brown-Campione – The moon and the stars while lying on a picnic table in the backyard listening to the peepers and feeling so peaceful.
  11. Bruce Sage – Watching the ISS streak across the sky. From horizon to horizon it takes about 10 seconds. Our weatherman lets us know the nights to look for it.
  12. WestTXSky – Since moving to Texas from the Northeast, I am still amazed at how close the sky is compared to up North. I love seeing the huge amount of stars that come out at night.
  13. Mandy Sparks – Finding the brightest star and making a wish.
  14. Smiley H Bigall - Being out in the middle of the woods looking up into what seems like infinity & being Awe struck at God’s creation!!
  15. Devin – the beautiful moon
  16. Twitch Chipmunk – All of the beautiful constellations! The ones I see the most are the Big and Little Dippers, but my favorite is Orion.
  17. Elvera Baker – I love it all! The night sky reminds me that there are many, many universes out and beyond our solar system! I would absolutely love to be one of the great few who gets to go out among the stars and see what is out there for myself! I just love it!!!
  18. Jason Morahan – love to find the constellations with my kids
  19. Stacy Huerta – The UFO’s of course!!!
  20. macmurry – All the stars. Too bad we can’t see them in the sun shine.

Daily question 1130 winners

Posted by on

Vindale Research

The winners
See who won our 1130th daily question below.

  1. Jodie Kirkland – My grandmother always said watermelon wasn’t ripe until the 4th of July. So on the 4th there was always watermelon!
  2. Chico Viars - Every year we go to my boyfriend-in-law’s (that would be my mother-in-law’s boyfriend) farm for a huge family cookout and then a fireworks display that rivals any municipal display I have ever seen. Afterward, lots of us gather around a fire pit for s’mores, conversation, and maybe even a song or 10 on my guitar. Folks come from different states and the place looks like a mini-campground. So, it’s not just 1 memory for me, but years of building memories for my wife, kids, family and me.
  3. Karen P - My birthday is July 06. My mom always kidded me about supposed to have been born on July 04. But I was a dud. So I spent my entire youth proving her wrong.
  4. Sue W. – My favorite 4th was the first year our son got leave from the Air Force and was home for our annual 4th Backyard bash.
  5. Jo Peyton - My son was born on July 1st. He always thought the fireworks were for birthdays. When his sister was born in February,. he asked when her fireworks were going to be.
  6. Casimina Doner - My favorite 4th story was from when I was growing up. We always used to have a small family reunion at my Aunt’s house in the country for the 4th. We would get there early and play horse shoes, go swimming and have a big BBQ, then us kids would pile in the back of my uncles and dad’s pick up to drive to the top of Mosher Hill at dusk. We would all lay or sit in the back to see the fireworks. From the hill we could see four different town’s show. It was always fun and wonderful watching the night sky light up from all angles! Plus we never used to get home til 1 am, for me that was sooo past my bedtime to be the most awesome night of the year ;)
  7. Claudia R. - John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died within hours of each other, on the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1826. There is probably no greater coincidence in American history. In their retirement, they exchanged a memorable correspondence in which they expressed all of their concerns for, as well as their pride in, the new nation. “You and I ought not to die,” Adams wrote Jefferson, “before we have explained ourselves to each other.”
  8. Susie M – We BBQ a trip-tip roast, add potatoes to bake and asparagus on the grill – than make ice cream sundaes for dessert. We head downtown and up to the highest car park where you can see the fireworks that are being held at the local fairgrounds – fabulous view, no charge and no hour long wait to leave the parking grounds. Also my Aunt Mary was born on this day – Fabulous!! HAPPY 4th EVERYONE!!
  9. msemi77 – The year my ex-husband and I stayed at a coworker’s farm with about 30 other coworkers and who knows how many other friends and family members! Everyone brought fireworks, meat for the grill/lots of good food… There were so many fireworks that I think we went for a good 4 hours with several guys lighting them off lol. We all camped out in sleeping bags, some of us still watching the fireworks from our sleeping bags under the stars. Great night!
  10. Erin Estilette – The years when we could go to the lake behind our house and watch two different fireworks displays in the distance, and we were able to enjoy some of our own, because we were all alone on that private little beach. We’d roast hot dogs, make s’mores, and spend hours laughing, goofing off, and having the best time ever! My birthday is on the 2nd, and now I share a birthday with my nephew. He just turned 2! Needless to say, it is always a festive week for us.
  11. OceanGirl – It’s always been a dream of mine to visit Machu Picchu! Well, that dream came true two years ago on July 4, 2013! And that’s my favorite 4th of July story –when I went to Peru and got to see Machu Picchu! It was breathtaking and amazing!
  12. Crizzy – Being English is a bit of a disadvantage when it comes to American History so I only know that the anniversary nowadays is a good excuse for a party and fireworks display. However, about 25 years ago the film ‘Born on the 4th of July’ made a big impression on me – not just because of the gorgeous Tom Cruise!
  13. Roderica Smith – My favorite 4th of July story is every year when I get to see my family in Texas. I usually make a special trip for the month of July because July 2nd is my son’s birthday, July 4th of course, and two family reunions. This year is extremely special because we spent the 4th of July at my son’s house with a crawfish boil, karaoke machine, and water gun and water balloon fights. The best 4th of July ever!
  14. Jim N - My humble words would be superfluous …
  15. navjot kaur – my marriage anniversery. I get married to my love on 4th july 2011 after a long time friendship from school in 2000.
  16. edeliz - My favorite 4th was a couple of decades ago on the way back home from the family’s traditional picnic. As we were leaving the town, we passed by a creek and there were what looked like thousands of fireflies lighting up like fireworks. We pulled over and looked at the beautiful sight for quite a while. It was pretty magical!
  17. MyKinKStar - Best fireworks EVER are in our nation’s capital! We would get a room at the JW Marriott on Pennsylvania Avenue early, then spend the day walking among the monuments and popping into different Smithsonian museums to cool off. We’d eat street food from a vendor truck or go to Chinatown for a real meal, then walk over to the Washington Monument. NOTHING cooler than being able to lay on the lawn, among thousands of others, looking straight up to watch the sky explode with colors! When it’s over there are ashes all over your clothes and in your hair, but it’s all sooo worth it! The walk back to the room is an extra added treat because most people are trying to get to Metro (subway) or their car, and we’d only have a few blocks to suffer the crowd and traffic. Good Times!
  18. M Lor - My favorite 4th of July is for this year. I was able to spend it with my two grandsons. We rented a water slide fun jump and invited several families over. With the children having fun on the water slide we were able to bar b q and prepare all the fixings. After enjoying our day and with our bellies full we sat and popped fireworks. It was a very nice day. To me it was what freedom is all about.
  19. Teresa Rojas - My favorite is the story of how our founding fathers got together and signed the Declaration of Independence on this day. Thank you to each and everyone of you who signed
  20. Rosanne A – July 4th, 1979, was the last time I saw my grandpa! We had a family get-together and we all had a great time telling family stories. A week later, my grandpa passed away. I always remember him on the 4th of July!!!
