Welcome to the webpage of a scale model of our solar system at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada!
For information on the various planets, click on the links in the sidebar to the left.
Each planet's webpage contains images, information (including the length of each planet's year and solar day), and links to more information about that planet online.
The panels of this model are located in the Petrie Science and Engineering building on the Keele Campus of York University (click for directions). They will be moved to an outside location once construction of the new Pan-Am Games stadium is complete.
