Favourite Constellations

The latest offering from SARM's Astropoetry Master Club and Friends is Favourite Consetellations coordinated by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe and designed by Florin Stancu after an idea by Mihai Petrache (initially debated on the SARM mailing list by Romanian sky lovers from all over the world)

My contribution was this wordle.

The anthology consists of photographs and poetry; David R Keedy writes about the celestial zoo; Valentin Grigore photographs Venus, Moon, Jupiter, November 2008; Alexandru Tudorica presents a photo-collage of Perseids 2008; Andrei Dorian Gheorghe provides
Sagittarius -
centaur tattooed with
Messier deep sky objects
Deborah P. Kolodji wonders what it would be like to ride Pegasus and Dominic Diamant answers her; Bruce Boston pens an astro-fantasy; Adrian Bruno Sonka photographs NGC4565 Spiral Galaxy in Coma Berenices; Alastair McBeath describes watching Orion; Ovidiu Vaduvescu observes the Southern Cross in Hawaii; the chorus of an astrofolk song by Dan Mitrut goes
Why are you so amazed?
This world is a mirror with an inverted image
And we don’t know to separate
The mystery from the farce.
Many other anthologies of photographs and poetry can be found on Cosmopoetry.
