    That’s pretty cool. So I guess if the sun was an actual ball out in the open, rather than painted in the interior of the museum, and you could see it from the Earth model a mile away, it would appear to be the same size as the sun does in the sky.

    It’s also interesting that the entire inner solar system out to mars is contained withing the same town, while Pluto is many miles away.

    You’re testing the limits of my science knowlege (neither that nor math is a strong point). If you’re really curious, contact Pr. McCartney through the Old Iron Inn or UMPI. But yes, the whole model is really cool.
