    Has anyone got their own Orrery?

    I would love one for the ceiling, all to as much scale as possible with solar, planar and lunar rotations.

    Nope. I had a crappy plastic toy that was just the earth, moon and sun but it's probably in a junk yard somewhere now.

    Would be awesome to have a legit one though.

    having it to scale would be rather disappointing. All the planets would be tiny, even if it filled your house, and you wouldn't be able to see the moons at all. :m077:

    would still love to have one though.

    not to true scale, but closer to scale than most.
