OMFSM this made me laugh out loud in delight!

How adorable is that? It's called "Orbit Buddy", and was created by DeviantArt user Royaba.

I guess planets are the opposite of astronomers. We don't like the Moon to be up when we observe because it lights up the sky and washes out all the fainter stuff we're trying to see. Unless we're observing the Moon, of course. But either way, we get the same expression on our faces when we see fun stuff though the eyepiece.

[UPDATE: Right after posting this I realized the Moon is orbiting in the wrong direction. But it's still awfully cute.]
