Did you know: Based on current estimates, there are between 200 - 400 billion stars in our galaxy, The Milky Way.
Did you know: The newest estimates gained by the Hubble space telescope places an estimate of 100-500 billion Galaxies (in the visible universe) containing on average 300 billion stars for each galaxy.
So taking a conservative number of 100 billion stars per galaxy gives an approximate total of 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars. (Which is 10 sextillion)
Now, Did you know: That on average, the stars we observe and look for planets nearest to us have an average of 5 planets per solar system. In our solar system there are 166 and counting moons for the 8 planets we have, making about an average 20 moons per one planet.
If there are on average 5 planets per star in the solar system this means 50,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (50 sextillion) planets with some 200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 moons.
^ Just my favorite thing about my existence is the fact that there are so many god damn possibilities for terrestrial planets, and moons.
Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop to look around once and a while, you could miss it.
