Finished Star Clock

Here is the finished Star Clock.  We did a little modification of the code as the 1hz pulsing of the points proved a bit distracting.  It's kind of hard to see in the pictures here, but the points begin as purple and fade over to blue, 1 per minute.  When all five points are blue, the minute hand kicks over another 5 minutes.
A couple of further tweaks are planned, a shift of the clock face itself in color from a.m. to p.m.  With the RTC chosen it's even possible to make the clock change colors on a particular date.  Also completely un-used (except to say Happy Christmas at the moment) is the 16x2 LCD display and navigation buttons mounted on the the back.
