In Process

Here's a simple update.  I'm in the process of completing the next step: elevation.  In the process i've learned some new things, which i'll post about once i'm sure i'm done learning them, and once i've completed this step.

Here's what the elevation looks like at the moment.  Notice some parts are much more refined than others.  Click on the image for a rather large version.

What better way to signify that a someone is not on earth than to have them look up and see a different moon, or even more than one?

There are a couple ways the moon(s) will effect you planet besides making the night sky prettier.
