The blue line indicates how the 90th Meridian crosses Fuller Dome from north to south, going through Edwardsvile at the zenith and a vertex of the icosahedron

The green line runs along the 90th Meridian, coming from the top of the photo which is in the north of the dome and map with respect to Edwardsville at the vertex of the icosahedral frame of Fuller Dome.

Above, on the left, the blue line indicates how the 90th Meridian crosses Fuller Dome from north to south, going through Edwardsville at the zenith and a vertex of the icosahedron. In the next photo, Fuller Dome top or zenith is mapped to its site: Edwardsville, IL on the 90th W Meridian of Longitude.

The 90th

This is aligned with Fuller's ideology about the 90th Meridian being the world's highway connecting everyone. The Dome is a geodesic representation of the Earth positioned in the universe.

Seeing that The Fuller Dome is an ideal place to celebrate a solstice being aligned with the 90th Meridian of Longitude of earth and if I become 90 years old on my birthday on the solstice of December 21, 2024, I declare it a great place for a 90th birthday solstice celebration. At least that seemed like an engaging idea until remembering that the midwest is deep in winter snow and ice. Perhaps the June solstice would be better, celebrating 90 years since I was in a pre-natal state. In 2020, it is on June 20 at 3:21PM CDT or 20:21 Universal Time. In 2024, it is on June 20 at 3:50PM CDT. I planned to be there. Until May of that year when I just can't do it. I don't have the energy, time, or money to plan and execute this fantasy trip. But I will be there in spirit.

June 21 at 8:07PM CDT is the first full moon after the Inner Solstice.

Keep this dream web page as a log of the notion. To the solstice. See Outer Solstice 2017 for one view of the galactic relationship.

Here are local Fuller geodesic domes (taken from this page:

  • Previous Fuller home at 407 S Forest Ave, Carbondale, Illinois. (618) 559-8931. By appointment.
  • Mary Brown Center in East St Louis. This is a built example of Bucky's 1965 Laminar Geodesic Dome patent. It was built in 1968 and housed the "town hall" meetings for Bucky's Old Man River City Project he designed for East St Louis in collaboration with Washington University at the urging of famed East St Louis dancer, Katherine Dunham and Wyvetter H. Younge, an Illinois state representative serving East St Louis. (618) 875-2131. 606 S 15th St., East Saint Louis, Illinois 62207. Also Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House.
  • Union Tank Car dome in Wood River Illinois. The Woodriver dome was built in 1961. It's 384-foot-wide by 120-foot-high geodesic dome. It was constructed for the Union Tank Car Company for the repair of railroad oil tank cars. Synergetics, Inc., a company founded by Bucky, built this as a pair of tank car domes, but the earlier dome in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, built in 1958 was demolished 2008. At the time, the two domes were the world's largest clear-span structures. Occupied by Watco Mechanical Services, 435 Old St. Louis Rd. Wood River, Illinois.

    Drive by.

  • "Climatron" dome at the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St Louis. 4344 Shaw Boulevard, St. Louis, Missouri.
  • the St. Louis City Museum. Immersive art. A fun additional event.
  • Gateway Arch in St. Louis on the Mississippi for museum about western expansion in visitor center. For reference: 
  • Cahokia Mounds, pyramids east of St. Louis, MO near Collingswood, IL. It is 15 miles south of Edwardsville via highway 55.

Associated project: 5-year plan for Wholeo 2024.
