This Is What It Looks Like

When the astronomy book asks you to put on a play to help you remember the discovery of a planet.

It's also what happens when you rope your little brother into playing a part. :)

Here are two short chunks of a completely unscripted play.  We read a rough outline of the story to T and this is the resulting performance--unedited to document real life. ;)   

(They crack me up.)

*A few astronomy notes:  Uranus was discovered by William and Caroline Herschel--professional musicians with an avid interest in astronomy.  Comets tend to follow an elliptical path around the sun, while planets have a more circular orbit. Oh, and planets often look like discs in the sky (referred to by T as a CD and then a CD player.) :)
