The Milky Way

Question

I am planning a trip to a state park where I will be able to see the Milky Way. Is there a blessing I should recite upon viewing it?

Answers

  1. In order to make a blessing over something it needs to be seen without the aid of a telescope and/or any other technology. In addition, blessings are made only on seeing shooting stars, not stationary ones. Enjoy your trip!
