This was probably the "short" story that I liked the least. Short is in quotations for a reason. I found this story to be way too detailed. Although, I did like the narration and the final paragraph in which it felt like the narrator was talking directly to me.

"It was only by analogy that they called it colour at all" Some things are just that strange, although I think that language is weird that way, we have so many words for so many things, but there are still things that elude words.

I agree, this story was not very confusing but more so boring, in my opinion it had too many run on sentences and was a little hard to follow

"Conjecture was vain" does that mean that they couldn't draw any conclusions?

This story creates fears of the unknown universe. I think Aerolite it's very interesting but it is very scary if you think about it.

I like how Lovecraft has the narrator try to figure out the mystery alongside the reader and that really helps the story feel more mysterious and suspenseful

I'm so glad we have the internet. Didn't know what saxifrage was, or skunk-cabbage. I feel like if I didn't have the internet, I would just not get half of this story.

The Colour out of space is super interesting and detailed. I think it was interesting how a meteorite crashed there and it seemed to poison everywhere around it, preventing anything from growing. It kind of makes me think that space is death

The Colour Out of Space had a distinct undertone message of an apocalyptic society. That was especially evident when the speaker was not sure if Ammi was telling the truth to them. The Meteor seemed to ruin the hills and the valleys not just physically.

Definitely was into this story, I’m always into space and sci-fi, but what’s with the cliff hanger ending???

this was such a creepy story, so much wild imagery that was so vivid. Definitely interesting though

This story is how i always imagined aliens. Instead of being E.T or the aliens from the alien movie. I imagined them as something we cant comprehend/see with our own eyes

aqua regia? had to look it up, but things like that are something I'm just like, "dunno what that is but okay." When was this story written? I don't know if it'd help understand it but it never hurts.

I didn't know what Lovecraft was referring to with " It was too much like a landscape of Salvator Rosa" so I looked it up and if helped me form a better picture of what the setting looked like and kind of creeped me out.

I'll be honest, I don't get all the references he makes (but that's what the internet's for), I really can't say what about the writing gives me enough detail that it makes me feel like I'm there without being too descriptive.

I'm not much of a sci-fi fan but this story kept my attention and I think it was because of the way they portrayed the aliens to be something so mysterious.

Overall, I really liked the story. Somewhat science-fiction but also not, close enough to reality setting-wise to warrant that it's something to which I can connect. I think that's generally my biggest issue when reading.

I thought this was a very interesting reference, I wasn’t familiar with the art as well but once it search it up it answered a lot of questions I had about the story

That paragraph... "Yet the outcome was the same.... it would be no use waiting for the moon to shew what was left down there at Nahum's" How many big words can we fit into a paragraph!

"the color... it burns... cold an' wet... but it burns..." Interesting description, makes me think of synaesthesia.
