Space Game! Where in the Solar System is Destination Eight? (day 2)

Hey Space Bloggers. Here’s your Day 2 limmer-iddle!

I’m draped in a rust colored wrap

topped off by an icy, white cap.

I’ve a few zillion dunes,

two potato shaped moons,

and a rover asleep in my lap!

Would you like to see that cap? Take a look at D8’s north pole.

That’s all for now, Space Bloggers. Let me know when you’ve spotted those funny shaped moons – do they have names??? And report back next post day for another clue to the whereabouts of the mysterious and dusty (that’s another hint) Destination Eight.

Newcomers, check Space Game Rules!

    Ha! ha! I’m guessing this is Mars, although I didn’t remember that it had two moons. A picture showing two moons on the horizon would be cool. From Mars can you ever see two moons at once?

    I heard on the news the other day that a collision between *4* galaxies was just discovered. Of course, it’s been going on for something like 300 thousand years, or something like that. Know anything more about it?
