paint dome roof as world globe

paint dome roof as world globe; your city at top; north true north
  [vote for,

In Milwaukee and Chicago we store road salt in large domed structures. Why not paint a world map on them, with the symbolic location of the dome on positioned at the top of the dome - as though a copy of the real earth was downsized, but not rotated or shifted.

The sun shadow on this dome would be a perfect analog of the shadow on the earth. A good educational prop for kids.

Only if the painted globe were tilted by the same angle as your latitude.

       This is cool, but I'd still like door peep-holes installed so when I turn off the lights the stars come out.
