Having the handy brass plate with degree markings, it was not too hard to make a convincing "Orrery". Any resemblance to our own solar system is ... er, uhh ... fortunate!
Just one terrain, a "shocking" high voltage volumetric glowing sphere, and assorted primitives.
Thanks for tossing in a quarter to watch it play. Your comments are always welcome.

Love this image. Obviously much time and effort went into the dial. Only thing I would change is the background. Nice work!

Wow! I love the precision of your construction here. Beautiful. I presume that the "one terrain" is the brass plate? Just trying to reconstruct this in my mind.

Wow, and to think mine was only made out of dirt. Very clean. Well done
