The Illuminated Orbitor is a unique science model of how the earth orbits the sun. This model easily lights up the Sun by plugging it into a standard wall outlet (UL approved - 6' power cord) to illuminate the Sun. This science model effectively demonstrates daylight, night, seasons, and phases of the Moon.
The Sun, Earth and Moon manually revolve around one another on this gear-driven model. Teachers and parents will love the the 8 page Lesson Plan which includes basic investigations and activities on the following topics:
The earth and moon are shown in true scale. The scale is 1 inch = 2000 miles. If the sun were to be shown at the same scale, it would be approximately 36 feet in diameter!
Size: Size: 25.5" x 16" x 10.50" - Arm is 15", Sun is 6", and the Earth is 4" in diameter.
Special Notice: The arm of this orbiter manually rotates around the Sun while the Earth rotates mechanically in the same direction as the arm.
