The Story Of Finding The Planet Neptune!

neptune

The planet Neptune was finally discovered on September 23, 1846. Galileo saw it, but thought it was just a star that happened to be next to Jupiter, so he blew it off. Over the course of 200 more years many other astronomers saw it too, but they weren’t paying attention either and didn’t figure out it was a planet.

Finally Johann Galle got it right, but only with the help of a good math friend named Urbain. Johann got a letter telling him that according to Urbain’s calculations, there should be a planet at the exact coordinates of Neptune. He told him to check it out and see if he was correct.

Johann looked through his telescope and WHAMO! there was Neptune right where his friend had predicted.

The moral? Henry David Thoreau said it best: “In the long run, men only hit what they aim at.”

If you look at things with only human eyes, you won’t know how to aim at anything other than what you can see. Only God can see the whole picture and knows what the future holds. Don’t be afraid to walk in places you have never been as long as He is your tour guide leading the way.

Make sure you hit the target that God has set forth for you and don’t aim for anything less.
