POTD: Syzygy

New York, New York

Calder likely was not thinking of planetary systems when he built this mobile, but that’s certainly what it made me think of. I was immediately reminded of the orrery that was in the classroom back in my grade school days.

  1. First, great photo, Larry. Second, you score mega points in Scrabble with this post: sysygy and orrery. I had to look up that last one as I’ve never heard/read it before. POTD expanded my vocabulary today! 🙂

    1. Thanks Kathy. I hadn’t realized those words would be major scores in Scrabble–I’ll have to keep that in mind. I actually looked up both words; I knew there were more technical names than just calling them planetary alignment and solar system models but those where not what I thought they would be when I looked them up! Your vocabulary comment reminded me of my late aunt Betty. She was an avid follower of POTD and told me several times she was learning new words and facts from the commentary.
