Derby #249: Astronomy

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Yes, Astronomy, the science of celestial objects! We're big fans of space, you know. Big, BIG fans. We love stars and planets and galaxies and all that stuff. Heck, we've got a lifesize cardboard cutout of Neil DeGrasse Tyson in our bedroom breakroom. This week, give us nothing less than the heavens themselves. Show us your mastery of astrophysics, nebulae, comets, black holes, and more. But don't be afraid to dive into the meatier stuff, too: the celestial motion, celestial navigation, gamma rays, and telescopes and the like. Just remember these rules:
