Seen on PBS stations throughout North America and Internationally via satellite,
the Armed Services Network, NASA C.O.R.E.and USIA WORLDNET


Uncharted suns and planets past all counting,
whirling, twirling down unnumbered years,
nations by the trillion, faintly guessed at,
come and gone and still more yet to be:


Far as man made eyes can reach
and farther.......
perched and poised peer through the night
and seem to beg, plead, cry out in our stead


If only for one Speck of Time
.......................Speck of Space
