Driving the Milky Way

While on Australia's Gold Coast I happened to spot a rather interesting road sign.

So, as you might expect, I couldn't resist a drive along the Milky Way to see where it led to. It turned out that most of the streets in that area had an astronomy theme. The streets I found included: Planet Place, Orbit Ct., Constellation Cres., Venus Crt., Moonbeam Parade, Eclipse Ct., Meteor Crt., Sun Crt. and Universe Crt. I wonder if it was an amateur astronomer that named them.
