Suddenly, Astro got a fright – a bulb has burst and now everything was as black as Midnight. Would they be alright ? the crew wondered, getting rather up tight … Astro Nomical lit a candle to try and get some better sight, but it was difficult when the Sun eclipsed the light. The candle was really no good, – it was made from Moondust, rather than wax or wood. Luckily, a box of matches was one of things the crew did remember – but that didn’t mean to say that the candle was any better a glowing ember. Hardly surprising that the candle didn’t shine that bright – doing little to illuminate the satellite (which continued to zoom off in full flight at quite a height !). Getting the universe’s billions and billions of stars lit, was proving to be difficult and no light did they omit. The rocket that they were flying in was still just about upright – the headlamps, too, were broken, making the Astro crew even more up tight ! The Astro crew hid in an Astro – cave, with stallegmites and stallectites – in the dark, they say an alien – looking pale and white. On the craters of the Moon, Astro Nomical started to alight – he planted a candle – then puffed with all his might. The sparks became constellations and shone in the sky, lighting the way for rockets and Astro buggies passing by.
