scale solar system

Each planetary station is encased in a clear dome that is the same size as the sun, allowing for a direct comparison of the planet size with the sun.
The small placard inside the dome tells the observer how far away each planet must be placed from the sun to remain in scale.
Below each dome is mounted an informational placard. It is laminated and sealed between 2 pieces of duraglass.
The pedestals are finished in a starry night effect.
The sun uses a 13 watt fluorescent bulb.
The planets and moons are labeled with brass nameplates.

We also added pedestals for an indoor version. The Challenger Space Center's outdoor model now lines the sidewalk leading to their front entance.
The picture above shows the outdoor scale solar system display after its installation along the front walkway at the Challenger Space Center.
