How the Moon and Stars became.

A myth submitted to the site by Chloe Garwood

Ely, United Kingdom

Long ago, before there was light in the night sky, there was a garden, with the only plants that were able to grow in such darkness. There was a creature who lived in the garden, his name was Human. He lived in the garden and took good care of it. In the middle of the garden was a circle of white rocks, and they were the only thing that kept Human happy.

One night, Human was very upset, he was in complete darkness again and he was bored of it. So he decided to find a big rock, the biggest one he could find, he threw it into the sky in hope it would stay in the air long enough to keep the sky light. The rock maneged to stay in the sky, and it never fell down, but it still wasn't light enough in the night sky to see much, though Human knew it would never be as bright as day. After another week of barely any light at night, Human knew what he should try to do, he randomly chose rocks and with hope, threw them into the sky, accompanying the big rock. He'd thrown a good 50 rocks into the sky until his arms started to ache, so he stopped. He couldn't just call them rocks either so he gave them names, the big rock named the Moon and the smaller rocks were named Stars.

Thats how the Moon and stars now live in the night sky. If you look close enough you can just see the humans fingerprint on the surface of the moon.
