Solar system lights from Argos

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. I saw these in Sky at Night Magazine. £10 in Argos and a lovely little set.

A string of 10 battery powered lights (includes Pluto, yes it is a planet!)

Great gifts or just a treat for yourself.

Mine are going out in my observatory.

Thanks. I couldn't find them on Argos.ie. They look kinda cool. 

Just reading reviews. They are flat and not spherical. 

Oh well!!!!!.

"you get 10 unique planets"

I wasn't expecting that.

Oh, I see.  One of them is the Sun.  That's definitely a unique planet :)

I suppose, in the ancient Greek sense it is! The word "planet" is derived from the Greek terms for "wanderer" and the original planets were considered to be the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn & the Sun. 😷

sorry everybody only just logged back in. Thanks to scousespacecat for providing the link.

They are certainly unusual and well worth a tenner.
