Scale model of solar system to be unveiled
The John J. McCarthy Observatory in New Milford will unveil its scale model of the solar system Nov. 14.
Following a brief ceremony at the Route 7 South observatory, behind the high school, the planets along with plaques giving information about each one will be installed at various locations around town.
The result will be a model of the solar system scaled to size and distance from the sun.
Participants will be able to take a tour of the solar system by following the installation crew to the various locations.
Only a handful of communities in the world have such a science and teaching tool.
