Great Second Life Destinations: The Planets by Caledonia Skytower on LEA 4 - Jupiter, The Bringer of Jolity



Caledonia Skytower has a wonderful art installation on LEA 4 inspired by english composer Gustav Holst's evocative suite of musical tone poems, The Planets.  You are given links to the music for each planet when you arrive and can fine the suite of music here on You Tube. I am running a version of the famous martial music from Jupiter, one of the two most famous movements of the suite, below. Playing the music adds much to a visit.




Jupiter, the bringer of jollity, starts off as a journey through a lighted maze that the visitor must make his or her way through before reaching a festive level on top. Dance and couple animations make for a romantic destination.




Your taxi to the main exhibition area on LEA 4-  The teleport area to each "planet" exhibition is a short walk away from the landing area. Just follow the sign when you arrive.  Jupiter is just one of the 7 "planets" that is open through the end of May, 2017.  Visitors are welcome to leave poetic impressions of their visit.

I thought that Jupiter made a good contrast with Mars, which is a very dark and foreboding world, and one which I reviewed here last month:

I first reviewed Neptune, an interactive aquatic world, here at the beginning of April:
