The category for this build was: 6) Astronomical: Since the dawn of time, humans have been fascinated with the universe and what it might hold. For this category, build something relating to the study of astronomy.
The Moon. Our ever-present sentry.
After first being discovered by Ug the looker-upper thousands of years ago, the Moon has been an object of both fascination and inspiration. This creation was made as a tool to learn about the orbit of the Moon and the Earth's rotation. It also shows some of the phases of the Moon: Full, new and waning crescent. The stars, as they should, shine (glow) in the dark.
The link will take you to a video of the creation and it's movement that I was unable to post here on MOCpages: https://youtu.be/gIaxv0yg-PU
Thanks for another great category judges!
On a personal note: I have been thinking of building something like this for over a year... a nice excuse to finally work on it.
