Have been over a few times already to play with it via the iPhone app (app is ‘Solar Equation’, funnily enough)…. Worth checking out for any Melburnians, ends in 2 weeks today. Loading... Cool! Errr… I mean, hot! Loading... … no sun spots i see! Loading... I want one in my backyard! Loading... there is no such thing as ” a million times smaller “ Loading... Isn’t that a fake? Loading... Phillip, It isn’t fake. It really exists and on opening night it crashed. http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs262.snc3/27745_436787675658_680710658_6233879_7971638_n.jpg Loading... Oh wow! That’s amazing and freaky at the same time. Every time I stare at it, I feel like it’s a comet coming to crash onto Earth. Loading... I like it.. It is pretty. (Yeah, I’m a real art critic, me ;-) Loading... Can we get a coronal mass ejection, please? :-D Loading... @Phillip, correct, there is not really a giant ball of fire hovering over Federation Square. @Chelsea, it’s well worth looking for video online, or going to see it yourself; it’s animated with sound. Very neat. Loading... I might check it out when I have the time this weekend. But I did go look for it in YouTube. Still amazing and a little freaky. Loading... Comments are closed.
