The Solar System


The focus of this area is a giant animated model of the Solar System. Other exhibits examine the Sun-Earth-Moon orbital relationships and the causes of solar and lunar eclipses, the Suns movement across the sky during different seasons, as well as space probe imagery of planets and their satellites. On a simulated lunar surface, visitors can create impact craters by dropping "meteorites". A cross-section of a meteorite can also be examined through a microscope in this area.
