Hi Jeff, thanks for visiting my site! I gather you looked at the Science Station page where I explain how the "scanner" works? To clarify, only one disk spins, and in this case it is the bottom one at about 2 RPM clockwise. The "blob" in the middle simply obscures the connection point where the bottom disks mounts to the drive shaft. The top pattern looks to be on clear glass, whereas the bottom pattern is mounted on a frosted glass. Or it could be the other way around, I don't know for sure! Either way, it makes for an extremely simple, yet effective visual display!
I'll be updating that page with a pic of the radial pattern that was used.
