Second Life Constellation

Second Life Constellation

I've been lazy in world of late, making figures out of the Second Life clouds and  just generally indulging my imagination.

Tonight I was lying on my back on the sea decks at Whimsy Kaboom, looking at the stars and thinking about the things I think about-- which is much nicer than thinking about the things I don't think about. And if you get the source of that last, you get a gold star.

As I was idling the night away I remembered an old manuscript Sweetie and I found long ago, buried in the sand at Whimsy.

Before long I was rooting through my inventory, looking for it. What did I name it? Where did I put it? Could I have thrown it out that time I went berserk and megacleaned my inventory? I must have. No! Wait! There it is!

The manuscript shows the constellations of the ancient Second Lifers-- you know, people older than 2005.

By matching the map against the stars in the sky (I derendered clouds to make it easier), I finally made out my first constellation:

Recognize it? Sure you do!
