Even though I had 4 (!) sorrys, thought it was a really well written and fun puzzle. Thanks Al!

I'm not a fan of astronomy so I'm not real knowledgeable, but this WP was well written, good clues, so even someone like me, with a smattering of knowledge, could keep most of my points.

Good job!

Good puzzle. I stunk at it, but good puzzle never the less.

Great puzzle had a second place score going with one letter to complete.
Out in a wrong three letter word and got sorry again when i corrected it; 8 guesses later a different three-letter word (I thought mine was better but i would wouldn't I) proved to be the culprit.
Great puzzle Al -- notwithstanding my idiocy!

Thanks to all [200 plus Sploofusers] who played the word puzzle. Many players scored 5000 points and several shined with first magnitude and warp drive efforts. The cosmos is full of wonders and perhaps worthy of another puzzle in the future.
As usual, my editor Sploofernatural, added extra loving care and suggested improvements on some clues.
Enjoy a peppermint pattie [they now make p.p. cookies too ] while you check the ten clues/phrases that were used. I appreciate the comments that several made earlier in the thread.
As Jack Horkheimer [the Star Hustler/ Star Gazer] says: KEEP LOOKING UP!
