The Galaxy

The universe is very interesting. For example the hottest planet is  Venus but is the second planet closest to the sun. Uranus is known as the sideways planet. Pluto used to be a planet but is now classified as a dwarf planet. Saturn is a very colorful planet. There are four planets closest to the sun and is called the inner planets. The four other planets are known as the outer planets. The order of the planets from the sun is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and last but not least Neptune. There are many dwarf planets. The most famous dwarf planet is Pluto but the names of all of the dwarf planets are Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris. Some people think the Sun is a planet but it is actually a star. You can see stars at night. Some people wish upon the brightest star. Others make a wish when a shooting star comes by. Something that is very strange is that the Moon does not orbit the sun it orbits the Earth! People risk their lives to go to outer space. In the galaxy there is no air. The first american to land his feet on the Moon was Neil Armstrong who rode in the Apollo 11. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first people to put the American flag on the Moon but when the crew left the thrust of the rocket engine pushed the flag over. You can one day be an astronaut but you would need a lot of training. You would train at NASA. NASA is a organization that stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration. You would think all that training is a waste of time but when you’re in space then all that training will make you prepared. It will take days to get to the Moon from Earth. You would not need to worry about starving. The rocket will have a storage space just for packaged foods. The interesting part is that when an astronaut wants some ice cream they have to eat it dry! The astronaut can have a choice to eat the dry ice cream by itself or drink water to make it like melted ice cream in his/her mouth. So now that you are done reading this would you like to be an astronaut?

 

My Opinion On The Book “Wings Of Fire Legends: Darkstalker”

I think the book ” Wings Of Fire Legends: Darkstalker” by Tui T. Sutherland was very exciting. If you had read a Wings Of Fire paperback book you will notice that it  mentions the dragonets of destiny but this is the origin story more than two thousand years ago. It was about a dragon named Darkstalker. He was able to see the future, read minds, and was an animus dragon. He got his animus powers from his Icewing father named Prince Arctic. Darkstalker is a Nightwing/Icewing. His mother is the Nightwing part of the family. Her name was Foeslayer. He also had a little sister named Whiteout. She was more recognizable to be a hybrid. At school other little dragonets would call Whiteout Weirdout because when you would ask her what was 2+2 she would say “uh lavender?”. The book also had other main characters called Fathom and Clearsight. Clearsight was a Nightwing who could see the future and Fathom was a Seawing who was also an animus dragon. Fathom had a good child hood with his family. His mother’s name was Manta, his father Reef, and his sister’s name was Pearl. Fathom also had a best friend named Indigo. He secretly had a crush on her. There was a party to welcome the Skywings Princess Sunset and Eagle. Queen Lagoon was killed that night along with Princess Sunset and almost all the Seawings. The killer was Fathom’s grandpa and brother to the Queen none other than the animus dragon Albatross. Only Fathom, Pearl, Indigo, and a few other Seawings survived. Pearl was the only royal family member that could inherit the throne because only female dragons can. Fathom took an oath to never use his animus powers ever. He also could not see Indigo ever again because Queen Pearl knew he liked her. Clearsight was supposed to go to school at the age of two but went to school at the age of three. For the past two years she had been studying the futures and taking note of them. Later Clearsight had to take a test to prove that she was able to join the other three year old dragons. The headmaster thought that she was so smart she should join the four year old dragons. She refused the offer saying that she wanted to stay with the three year old ones. At school she met Darkstalker who she was supposed to meet earlier. They fell in love with each other. Later in the story they talked about their future dragonets called Eclipse, Shadowhunter, and Fierceclaws. In the story Fathom got called to stop Darkstalker from using his magic to much so his soul would stay innocent and sweet instead of murderous and cold. Near the end of the story that was what happened. He became so evil that he killed his own father and almost killed Queen Vigilance who sent a killer named Quickdeath to kill him after all he did to help her to almost win the battle against Icewings. Luckily he stored all of his animus power in a scroll that was taken by Clearsight so he wouldn’t become more evil than he was now. Near the end of the story Fathom broke his oath and enchanted a bracelet to put on to Darkstalker so he would fall into a deep sleep.Then Clearsight buried his sleeping body in rocks inside of a cave in Agate Mountain waiting for the earthquake to come a bury his body even more. That is my summary of the book and I went through a roller coaster of emotions while reading the book but what I felt most was sadness.
