The Solar System
Please note, this event has expired.
Clark Planetarium’s model of the Solar System is 150 million times smaller than the real thing. Even at this scale, the Sun is so large it cannot be contained fully within the exhibit space! This exhibit has interesting facts about each planet and a computerized quiz that allows you to test your knowledge of the solar system.
