sesquipedaliatic: Crazy.  We has it. (Default)
Facts:
1. I've spend a significant portion of today mainlining the entirety of Wonders of the Solar System and the first half of Wonders of the Universe.
2. That (and a bunch of other factors) make me miss science and learning new things.
3. I purchased a giant pack of glow-in-the-dark stars and dots to decorate my room.

Results:
I now have a not-quite-to-scale model of the solar system on my ceiling. It includes planets both major and dwarf as well as all the major moons. My ceiling light was in the perfect place and of relative size to be the sun, and the light spill on the newly added planets appears to be vaguely accurate. WIN! I'm also charting it all so I can remember which moon is which. (Also, thanks to Wonders I have learned that the moons of Jupiter and Saturn are the COOLEST THINGS EVER.)

Further questions:
I still have a TON of dots and stars left (I had 4 sheets and have used a little more than half of 1). What do I do with them? I'm contemplating a constellation or two on my walls, but don't really have a specific plan. What constellations should I use? I have a fair bit of ceiling space left too. Should I map out something else in currently-untouched corner? What should I map out?
