    this one got alot of comments, i see! i’m just reading it now. i recently hung nine glow-in-the-dark plastic planets on my fins of my dotter’s ceiling fan so they car orbit the hub! we looked up the planets, saw fotos of them, and figured which was which and in what order they orbit the sun. it was a good lesson…and fun. thanks for this now! j
