You Learn Something New Each Day (Perhaps)

You Learn Something New Each Day (Perhaps)

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

Apparently it is a main belt asteroid

that takes 4.7 years to orbit the sun

the three-dimensional model

(based on its light curve)

is quite something to think on

I only learned of this today

a random Wikipedia search

brought 984 Gretia

my way

I f*****g love science. Did you hear they discovered gravity waves and that there is some sort of massive object on one side of the solar system that messes up orbits of the outside planet/planetoids? I wish I lived on a space station.

It kind of looks like a tooth... "there be giants!" lol

The universe and all that it hold blows my mind. I read and watch and learn all of the time. It is so massive and so intriguing. Your poem touches on another of the many discoveries waiting to be found. I liked this a lot. I did learn the other day that if Earth were veiwed by certain telescopes from a particular distance the many sattelites in orbit around her would appear as rings like Saturn or Neptune or a few others they have found to have debris rings. This poem was very good.
