Want to be a solar punk techno druid?

Start up Stellarium go into > Configuration > Plugins, then enable 'ArcheoLines'. This will give you the lines of the solstices, equinoxes and cross quarter. Enable 'Navigational Stars' and 'Compass Marks' so you can learn the brightest stars. Keep "Ground" toggled on, so you can see a simulated Horizon, and imagine standing in a field and building a little Sky Henge of your own. (or green house or passive solar.)

#solarpunkactionweek Make a star compass!

Find out what the brightest stars are in your location, where they rise on the azimuth (compass points). You can learn to tell time and the seasons, by watching which stars rise and set, too.


The Stellarium desktop planetarium is free, crossplatform and open source.

Stellarium is cool because you can toggle on different star cultures under 'star lore.'

@nimona I posit spooky shark makes a fantastic derby name!

I honestly don't know if I can find another instance that's worth it. I might try reactivating some of my old alts, and I've gotten an offer from rage.love to migrate there, but I don't know if I can catch lightning in a bottle again.

I know most of you are on Sunbeam are moving to other sites with the same handle. If I set up camp somewhere else, I'll probably be able to find you again without much trouble.

But if you never see me in the fediverse again? I suppose you'll know I failed.

If this is the end, I wish you all good luck.
