Oh my gosh, thank you! I was just about to message you.
It makes me super happy that you liked her enough to nab her! < 333
I was planning to put spines on her, but I can't help myself when I come across certain imperials. n.n

I think she's beautiful with Underbelly, so I'm glad you didn't :) Although you're right, spines would have been a lot more accurate to the real Saturn. I'm glad you found an Imperial that fit the bill! :)

Clear Skies!

I'd like to join! I don't know too much about astronomy but I find it so fascinating!

Space Spotlight


Hey everyone, I'd like to spotlight a fantastic free software! It's called SpaceEngine, and holy heck it is the best space program... ever. It's a "planetarium program" where you get fly around the universe, enjoying the sights. You can change the flow of time, the exposure, and select objects to see more info. It has basically every class of astronomical objects, and even things that blur the lines a little such as captured asteroids. Heck, I've even found a couple of planets orbiting so close to their host star that they were behaving like comets. This, folks, is a completely astronomically correct universe sim. And it's beautiful too.

Glad you like it! It's one of my favorite ways to spend my time when it's cloudy but I'm wanting my astronomy fix :)

Thanks for the link to Space Engine! I think I tried to download this once before and for whatever reason it wasn't working right. Perhaps I will try again.

I also thought I would throw out a link to the Zooniverse projects. For those who don't know, Zooniverse is a "citizen science project" were people from all around the globe get to participate in crowd funded scientific research. For example, in their "Galaxy Zoo" project, you get to look through pictures or galaxies and help classify them.

They also have many other projects dedicated to different areas of research other than astronomy, if any is interested in them as well.
