PLANET WALK:
University of Delaware Scale Model Solar System




Take a walk through the solar system:

Start with the Sun, located at the steps of Old College.
Next is Mercury, in front of Recitation Hall.
Then Venus in back of Recitation Hall.
Across the street is Earth, located east of Willard Hall.
A couple blocks away is Mars, off Main Street near Brown Hall.
Distances between planets increase with Jupiter, in front of Sharp Lab.
Saturn is near the Morris Library on the Mall.
Uranus is supposed to be just off of Courtney Street near
the Gilbert Complex, but has inexplicably left its orbit.
Neptune is quite a hike, in the Botanical Garden near Worrilow Hall.
Furthest away is Pluto, the Ice Planet, located in front of the Rust Ice Arena.
