Yet a tiny fraction, there is so much more Such a prominent universe to explore Numerous galaxies, planets and stars Orbiting the Sun above just like Mars

Saturn has a ring, others have a moon Planets filled with gas like a hot balloon Travelling in light years, so far away Yet our solar system is a vast array

Looking through my telescope, planets to see Looking out for Jupiter and Mercury There is icy Pluto further from the Sun My curious journey has just begun

The strong pull of gravity, keeping into place The days, months and years, yet moving at a pace Fascinating satellites, informative machine Launching of the space crafts, places never seen

If I were an astronaut, how would I feel? Adapting to space food, a dried and sealed meal Travelling on mission, in the atmosphere Witnessing diameters that I can but revere

On that day however, was my teacher playing tricks Looking through the glasses, viewing the eclipse Yet the Milky Way has a spiral twist Looking from our planet, where current life exists
