Six Word Story Challenge: Astronomical Object

The Six Word Story Challenge of this week is all about ASTRONOMICAL OBJECTS  or CELESTIAL BODIES.

Astronomical objects or celestial objects are naturally occurring physical entities, associations or structures that current science has demonstrated to exist in the observable universe.

The term astronomical object is sometimes used interchangeably with astronomical body. Typically, an astronomical (celestial) body refers to a single, cohesive structure that is bound together by gravity (and sometimes by electromagnetism).

Astronomical objects are gravitational bound structures that are associated with a position in space, but may consist of multiple independent astronomical bodies or objects. These objects range from single planets to star clusters, nebulae or entire galaxies. A comet may be described as a body, in reference to the frozen nucleus of ice and dust, or as an object, when describing the nucleus with its diffuse coma and tail.

Just a few examples: stars (like the sun), planets (like our dear earth), moons, dwarf planets, asteroids, comets, meteoroids, galaxies, you name it and it’s out there. And plenty of unnamed ones too!

So here’s the challenge for you: step outside and stare upwards until you can

write a story about an ASTRONOMICAL OBJECT in just six words. Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.

Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.

Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…

Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment to this one here at Figments. I will include your contribution in this post, forming a list of stories.

Will you join me? Will you? Say you do. And share the challenge news!

I look forward to your stories.

    1. That must be a sight to see! In this case, only two words would have been enough even: Blood Moon. Wow. I can imagine the night was dressed in special colors…
      Thanks so much for participating, Gray Poet!
