I've been playing some with Stellarium lately. I'm trying to visualize how Earth moves; not just know that it rotates around an axis and revolves around the sun, but visualize the motion from a non-rotating POV, and matching it with what I see on the surface. Like, I know Earth and Mars both revolve around the Sun, with Mars in a wider orbit, and that's why Mars takes that weird path through the sky, but I can't see it. That's what I'm trying to do.

I'm getting a real hankering for a planetarium show. I can even walk from my house to the one at the Museum of Natural Science, I just haven't done it yet.

Looks like they have shows about the Titanic, biology, hurricanes, dinosaurs (two!), ancient Rome, the Star of Bethlehem, and one where they play Dark Side of the Moon. Astonishingly, they even have a few about stars and planets and stuff. ;-)

Organizing an Expedition some time after Halloween. Let me know if you're interested.
