Today’s Strands puzzle was another simple parade. I didn’t need to use any hints as the theme was evident from the start. I found MOON, PLANET, and COMET in quick succession within the letter grid. Then, with a few letters singled out, I connected them to make ASTEROID in the bottom right corner.

Next up, it was easy to spot GALAXY above PLANET, thus, filling up the bottom half. Next, I found SPACE but it wasn’t one of the answers. Still, it did help reveal the OUTER SPACE Spangram for today, followed by the word SATELLITE. Thus, it was an intergalactic joy ride for me today.
