Post(s) tagged with "Solar System"

This is my puzzle-model Solar System. I said I would post a picture when I have it up. Ta-da. I’ll probably take a better picture sometime later. But you get the idea! It’s ridiculously awesome. Hooray. The best part is they included Pluto.
If you want to buy it~!
I also bought solar system wall stickers, which I am returning because the cut of Saturn and Uranus are completely off.

Neptune Finally Makes First Orbit Around the Sun Since Discovery In 1846 
—
The planet Neptune will be in opposition — when the sun, Earth, and a planet fall in a straight line on Aug. 20. The planet will be exactly opposite the sun in the sky, being highest in the sky at local midnight. Usually this is also the point where the planet is closest to the Earth.
This opposition is special because Neptune will be returning close to the spot where it was discovered in 1846, marking its first complete trip around the sun since its discovery.
Coincidentally opposition in 1846 also fell on Aug. 20, although the planet wasn’t actually spotted until over a month later, on Sept. 23.

WEDGE ANTILLES

Scribblings from an X-Wing in a galaxy far, far away.

Hello, my name is Rebecca. I'm an above average Star Wars fan. I have a deep appreciation for Wedge Antilles and the rest of the X-Wing pilots (most specifically Rogue and Wraith Squadrons). I, also, lead a Corran Horn appreciation life.
