    Smile sentences

    Are the following sentences acceptable?

    (1) Some time ago; while I was roaming through the immense space, I discovered a globe, the Earth, which is as clear as a crystal.

    (2) I watched it, fascinated.

    (3) I couldn't resist its temptatin, so I berthed my space ship here.

    You don't put a semicolon after, "Some time ago ..."
    "as clear as crystal" is the idiom.

    (2) I watched it, fascinated.

    (3) I couldn't resist its temptation, so I berthed my space ship here.
    Otherwise, it's OK
