A Book about Astropoetic Drama

the generous Sun inspired me to think of my “glorious” moments of astropoetic drama that I directed at many international astronomical events.
I chose nine of them as photo-examples:
-A cosmopoetry gala of the Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy (SARM), Bucharest Municipal Observatory, 2002.
-The International Astronomical Union symposium that opened the International Year of Astronomy, UNESCO, Paris, 2009.
-The astropoetry show in SARM’s winning event for the world festival “Galilean Nights” (a cornerstone program in the International Year of Astronomy), Targoviste, 2009 (when I performed even Galileo Galilei).
-The joint cosmopoetry gala of SARM and Astronomers Without Borders, Targoviste International AstroFest 2018. -International Meteor Conference 2001 (a fight between a Perseid fireball and an Alpha Capricornid fireball), Cerkno, Slovenia.
-International Meteor Conference 2007 (a space tyrant attacking an astropoet astronaut), Bareges, 2007, France. -International Meteor Conference 2007 (a meteoroid jumping the atmospheric border, viewed by the atmospheric supervisor), Bareges, 2007, France.
-International Meteor Conference 2010 (an astropoet astronaut dancing on the Moon to the beat of a meteorite fall), Armagh, Northern Ireland.
-International Meteor Conference 2011 (sky lovers performing the music of meteor sounds captured from the sky through radioastronomy), Sibiu, Romania, 2011.
I also remembered the astropoetry show I did with Valentin Grigore at NASA’s Leonid MAC Campaign Workshop, Tel Aviv, Israel, 2000, after which some Romanian poems were published in the proceedings of the conference, “Leonid Storm Research”, Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2000.
Because I also directed many other similar moments in Romania, in December 2021 I published a book in the Romanian language, “Astropoetic Drama”, at the Astromix Publishing House, including a long essay, “30 Years of Romanian Astropoetic Drama and Its Amazing International Adventures”, and 15 dramas of this kind (8 written by me, 4 by others and 3 written by collectives coordinated by me).
