Dynamic Diagram of the Solar System

The Little One's Due Date

The Little One’s due date using the dynamic diagram.

This dynamic, moving model of our solar system is incredibly elegant and allows for a great many options including phase of the moon on a given day, going forward or backward in time, selection of a specific date, and placement of the major constellations related to astrology for those who wish to see the relationships between astrology, the ancient divination tool, which is a precursor to today’s science, and astronomy.

As I’ve said before, one doesn’t need to put faith into astrology to appreciate the historical contributions it made to modern day astronomy.  It took us several thousand years of celestial observation and questioning to come to the point we’re at now, and I wish I could see what the next several thousand years might show us about our universe as we continue to strive to understand it.
