I’m doing an early post tonight, because I’m gearing up to go to Boston tomorrow for MIT’s puzzle-solving competition, Mystery Hunt. I’ll be gone all weekend, but I should be able to eek out some sort of post for Monday morning. I’ll be away from all of my books, though, so it’s anybody’s guess what I’ll post about. I may end up posting one of the puzzles from Mystery Hunt this year if any of them involve Japanese, as they have in the past. We’ll see.

Today I have another crossword for you. I was reading my favorite space-related blog, Bad Astronomy, when it occurred to me that a crossword based on space and astronomy vocabulary in Japanese would be pretty fun to make. So I made one!

I’ll cover many of these words and concepts in greater depth in a Japanese astronomy-related post in the future. For now, have fun with this vocabulary! Enjoy, and let me know if you solve it!

    Is it bad that I know half of these from watching Sailormoon back in the day?

    I’ve found them all (with the aid of my 電子辞書 mostly ^^;), except the word for atmosphere… Plz to be telling me what it is?

    Their astronomy-related vocabulary illustrates once again that Japanese are really awesome at making up words, btw. So delightfully simple… 月食 and 日食 are brilliant.
    Eh, it’s quite probable they just took over the Chinese words of course, but still.

    I love doing crossword puzzles in Japanese. I filled out the words I knew first (less than half of the puzzle I knew off the top of my head, I guess I need to work on my Japanese science vocabulary ^^;), and then used JDic and Alc to get the rest.

    And I agree with Jas: I love how Japanese/Chinese words are formed.

    I know an electronic dictionary(JP-EN) which could help people to solve crossword puzzles.
