Artist's Note

Think of it as a piece of Space 1899 high tech. - perhaps the Martian attack has failed and the humans are returning to Mars for their revenge? This is a piece of the Victorian space technology that human space farers might use in their quest for conquest of Mars.

Here is a Rainmeter version of my previous Steampunk Orrery. The Rainmeter skin is a straight conversion of the original steampunk orrery using my graphic for the front end. The clock is working, the cogs rotate and the clock tells the time. At the moment the advanced functions of the original Yahoo widget Orerry have not yet been transferred but this may yet occur... give me time. The hard work in converting the orerry was performed by a dedicated DA-er by the name of Mordasius:

His skills in converting the YWE! widget graphics to rainmeter have been heavily relied upon. I have a lot of learning to do for the next stage...

Mordasius has also used the moon shade images from from Visions+ by sgtevmckay in this conversion, so credit where credit is due.

The original YWE! widget was created by myself using my graphics and the javascript code of Harry Whitfield. Harry's hard work isn't in the latest version but we worked so long and hard on the original that he needs to be credited too. The original orrery widget for the yahoo widget engine can be found here:

Mordasius' inspiration was founded upon my steampunk widget but in turn my own inspiration was based upon a superb blog navigation device on Ian Tregillis' site created by Richard Mueller of 3232 design. His superb bit of Adobe Flash was really inspirational and it made me want to complete it (the original only shows 50% of the device and was limited to running on flash only web-pages within the browser). My version will add functionality and will run on your Mac or Windows desktop. See the original here: - This link won't work well on ipads or other devices that don't support flash.

Don't want to bore you with too many links but you do need to note - This widget requires Rainmeter 2.5 to operate. Download Rainmeter from here:

You may use any of my images in your own creations but commercially only with my permission. In all cases I require a credit to the original artist using my name or pseudonym and a link to my own site.
