Any astronomers in?
« on: October 29, 2019, 09:06:09 PM »
(WARNING - Rule 1 applies to skies too. It’s just a bit of fun!)

Very loosely model related so I thought it was best placed in the general section for a bit of fun. I was “playing” whilst painting the sky for my Gold Hill layout tonight. Can anyone spot anything of interest?



Hint - there’s 2 in there somewhere.

Orion

Well spotted. Even though I missed his helmet. I’ve added it since!  :-[

P.s. I hadn’t counted the comment so there’s still one to find.  :goggleeyes:

Assuming that it's the northern sky, I know something that's not there.... The Southern Cross  :D ;)

It’s a “rule 1” sky  :P :D



I’ve since added Orions “club” above his head. You learn something new everyday!  ;)

Not personally, but I have an archery buddy who works for Joderall Bank and the Square Kilometer Array (SKA).  I could get her to take a look if you like?
Cheers, Trev.

Comet T2PanSTARRS, Orion and Cassiopeia/Andromeda although the orientation is definitely rule 1.
