My god, it’s full of stars!

Great circle on a sphereImage illustrating a great circle via Wikipedia; Zemata would not serve up a picture of stars

Jewish date:  5 Shevaṭ 5770 (Parashath Bo’).

Today’s quasi-holidays:  Basketball Day.

Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is Wheel of Stars.  This is a sort of musical clock which simulates the sky, and every time a star crosses a specific great circle, a tone is sounded.  You may find this mysterious, eerie, or annoying.  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
