Creative use of simple objects (marbles and spinning top), imagination, and lighting. I like how the 'marble' planets jump off the black backdrop. Lighting them with a small LED Flashlight really made them shine (pardon the pun on that). But I do have a question: could you have held the flashlight at a greater height so that the spotlight would just shine on the marbles themselves without creating a 'halo' around them? If that could be accomplished you would light up your marble planets perfectly such that only they shine/pop off the black backdrop of 'space'. The giant 'planet' in the middle looks like a colorful Jupiter with that swirling eye. This is a very creative presentation showing us how marbles and a spinning top can become planets in space if we apply our imagination.
