JOIN US ON THIS FREE WALK TO DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM

Have you ever wondered what the Solar System is really like only to be bewildered by some science program talking about vast distances that you can’t get your head around?

A Solar System Walk allows you to understand what it’s all about in a simple interactive stroll. In this walk, we imagine the Sun is 250mm in diameter, the size of a small football. At that size, the Solar System would be just over 1 km. The planets are placed at the. correct scaled distances from the Sun and a picture of an everyday object is shown on the planet information board depicting its size in relation to the Sun (250mm). You could bring some of the everyday objects listed to help understand the scale, size, and distances involved or just use your imagination at each image. The objects are paperclips, thumbtack, peppercorn, crayon, ballpoint pen, plum, a battery, blueberry and a pea or something of similar size. We are located at the Bellacragher Boat Club.
