In honour of the late Costica Gheorghe, SARM (Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy) organised the first World Astrotipuritura Championship.

I was invited to make a contribution and submitted:

Red sky at night the shepherd
Hoisted by his own petard

Cioban la cer insangerat
De-a sa petarda inaltat

The Romanian translation is by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe.

All the contributors were declared champions and you can view all the poems, together with information about astrotipuritura and many excellent photographs on the World Astrotipuritura Championship website.
