Busy day today. All I can think of to say this evening is that Michael Jennings thinks that this is really nice, and that I agree with Michael.

But what if the thing that the sun is moving around is also moving?

    Nice to look at it is, Scientifically accurate, not so much. Please do scroll down the tweet and read the Slate critique of it.

    The sun is moving through the Milky Way and the Milky Way is moving its way around the universe.
    It seems reasonable to suggest that the universe is also moving around… er… something, but my head sort of explodes when I try to contemplate stuff at that level.

    So is the sun and earth moving around the common center of gravity?
