Contest description: 

Description:A contest using astronomy or astronomical events for your subject. Can be rhyming or free verse but if free verse it should still have good flow and at least Some structure. Quote from a Hawking/Mlodinow book might help give the right mindset :
"We each exist for but a short time, and in that time explore but a small part of the whole universe... Living in this vast world that is by turns kind and cruel, and gazing at the immense heavens above, people have always asked a multitude of questions: How can we understand the world in which we find ourselves?How does the universe behave? What is the nature of reality? Where did all this come from?..."
