Sorry Chris, there's a much easier way to do this. It should take you less than 5 minutes and you can forget about it being luck based once you figure this method out.

You will be playing in Supernova mode.

1) Check out this pic (can you embed pics in solutions?) and make the two shots shown: http://www.funketyme.com/images/games/wp7/orbital.gif

2) As a guideline, the first shot shout hit off the top of the playfield about one character's width to the left of the start of your gamertag.

3) Once you make those shots, do the same thing on the right side of the screen. Now you should have two of the three "that was close" ...

4) Now, pick a side and bounce five shots off the bottom orb to destroy it. It shouldn't be too hard to have those 5 shots go up to the top area of the playfield.

5) Repeat step one again and you'll have all three. If you have trouble with shots on one side, you can always just repeat steps 1 and 3 three times on your "good" side.

Should take you less than five minutes once you have that first shot in step 1 mastered.

P.S. Thanks to Bitforge for the original screenshot. It was the first screenshot I found when searching ...
