Band 9.0 Sample Answer Ideas.
I remember observing the stars one summer evening when I was on a camping trip with some friends. It was around 10pm, and we had just finished setting up our tents and cooking dinner. The campsite was located in a remote area with very little light pollution, so the stars were especially bright and clear.
We decided to take a walk to a nearby hilltop to get a better view of the night sky. The hill was a short distance away from the campsite, and we walked there together, chatting and enjoying the warm evening air. When we reached the top of the hill, we found a flat spot and sat down to observe the stars.
The sky was filled with twinkling stars of all different sizes and colors. We saw several constellations, including Orion, the Big Dipper, and the North Star. We also saw a few shooting stars, which was a very exciting sight. We spent about an hour on the hill, lying on our backs and gazing up at the stars. It was a beautiful and peaceful experience.
I felt a sense of awe and wonder as I observed the stars. The vastness of the night sky and the beauty of the celestial bodies made me feel small and insignificant, but in a good way. It was a reminder of the incredible world that we live in and the mysteries of the universe that are still yet to be explored. Overall, it was a very enjoyable and memorable experience that I will always treasure.

“Describe a time when you observed the stars IELTS Game”
1. Why do people like to study the sky?
People like to study the sky to notice the changes in weather; some see it as an inspiration for arts like painting, photography, etc.
It is also important to study about sky and space to understand that we are a part of a very large universe, which ignites our curiosity about what’s beyond the sky.
Some people study it, as they believe that planetary movements affect a person’s fate.
2. Do you know any story related to planets?
I don’t remember any one story, but I used to read the comics series Chacha Chaudhary, in which there is a giant named ‘Sabu’ who visits Earth from Jupiter and decides to stay back with Chacha Chaudhary, after he tastes the food on Earth.
There are also many movies made about superheroes from other planets, like PK, Spiderman.
3. Do you think children should be told planet stories to improve their imagination?
Yes, definitely. It is very important that children be told stories about other planets.
It most certainly helps improve their creativity and imagination, because of the curiosity it ignites/creates in their minds.
Some children also end up taking it up as a career path, e.g. astronauts, space research scientists, rocket engineers, etc.
4. Would children be benefited from watching stars?
Yes, children would be benefitted from watching stars. They become curious about the universe and outer space, which help increase their creativity and also, might help them chose it as a career path in the future.
5. Would you like to watch movies on planets?
Yes, I like to watch movies about other planets and outer space. In fact, I recently watched one such movie, PK, where an alien comes from another planet to Earth.
It is a very good and inspirational movie, where this alien character has been used very nicely to portray all the blind superstitions we follow. This movie was a blockbuster/super-hit.
6. Did you like to watch the sky when you were young?
Yes, I liked to watch the sky when I was young. I remember that during summer vacations, we used to visit our farmhouse and we used to sleep outside, in the open.
At that time I did not know anything about constellations, but we used to find the night sky with the twinkling stars very fascinating and beautiful.
