Happy Moon Day!

To celebrate Moon Day — the anniversary of the first Moon landing — this year, I made a rhombic triacontahedron with colored images of the Moon on each face. I got the image of the Moon from its Wikipedia page, and made this polyhedral image using Stella 4d, a program you can try for free right here.

The Icosahedron’s Fifth Stellation

The version above is colored per face, except for parallel faces, which have the same color. The one below is in “rainbow color mode.”

I made these using Stella 4d, which is available as a free trial download at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

Mr. Big, the Cat, May Think He’s Going Somewhere, Because the Humans are Packing. We’re Off to Florida, But He’s Not Going.

I can’t tell yet if Mr. Big wants to help or hinder the process of packing, but he sure is in the middle of things. We’ll see when we finish packing, and then the sun goes down, and we head down to Mobile, Alabama (without cats), from central Arkansas. That will be a good place to crash before the second leg of the trip, to the Orlando area. We’re celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary (which was yesterday) with this trip.
