    orbiting above

    Hello, here the writer gives a description of monster. But I couldn't understand what he wanted to mean by saying "orbiting above". How can we say this in other words?

    Multiple cordlike antennae crisscrossed in the
    center of the sand-sniperís face. Orbiting above,
    two large bowl eyes scanned the night, moving
    independent of each other.

    Hi ovvpapatya

    Try replacing "orbiting" with "rotating" - hopefully that should make it clearer.

    The best concept I could give you is that of a chameleon's eyes.

    Best regards
