It's been an impossibly busy few weeks at Urban Astronomer headquarters. So busy that no astronomy has happened at all, apart from a few stolen glances upwards at the night sky while feeding the dog. Thankfully, they've let me keep my Carnival hosting privileges, and so I still get to bring you the 418th Carnival of Space!
I'm obviously not the only busy one, though, as we've had very few submissions this week, and only one from a regular contributor. So if you normally find the full carnival to be too long to read in a single sitting, then you're in luck because we're keeping it short and sweet today!
