Welcome to the Carnival of Space! With Valentine’s Day coming up I decided the best way to express my love of all things celestial (shared by my fellow space bloggers below) was through poetry in motion.

So for those of you who enjoy gazing at the heavens above (as well as figuring out the science behind it all), this poem is for you! 🙂
