Why not trace the bitmaps?

That's a pretty good idea actually... vectorize them.. I made them bitmap
to preserve the detail of the image, but up close they're too pixellated
anyhow.

Now, the question is... where do I find good vector images of the planets?

when the planets zoom they look awfully bitmappy. did you consider making
them vector objects?

Actually.. the reason for the smaller text is simply because the text itself
is actually the same size.. but the planets themselves are substantially
bigger.

I was thinking of enhancing it to include many many more objects... namely
the next closest stars... Or perhaps making the planets orbit around the
sun?

Anyhow.. thank you very much for your input! :)

It's really nice. The only thing that bothered me a little was that the
text
for some of the planets was noticable smaller than the rest. Especially
Jupiter and saturn. Otherwise great job.
