SF Drabble #297 “Youth Astronomy”

Have you ever really looked at the moons, I mean, really? They’re so different: Jedris with her red, orange, yellow and black all swirling together; Collon, silver and uniform.

Father makes eyepieces. I got him to make me a spyglass. When I looked at Collon through it, it was as big as your head, but still only silver, no blemishes, nothing. Father is making me a more powerful spyglass now; I’m building a base for it in the yard from poured stone. When it’s done I’m going to make maps of both moons’ surfaces.

I have a theory about Collon.
