Supermoon

Based on BBC news article "Supermoon lights up sky around the world" http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-37978572 On the night November fourteen By orbit's cycles, moon looms near An astral stellar lunar scene Since '48 the largest sphere Around the world the drifting night Heaven's show of nature's wonder Peoples of the world unite Common sky we all live under From New Zealand to New Delhi Cairo, London, Bondi beach Leave the tablet and the telly Go outside and stretch to reach On your own or with some friends Join the upward looking crowds Pause and ponder - does space end? Unless you're cursed with thick grey clouds

This was really good. It is humorous though it makes perfect sense. Nicely done.
