Solar System to Scale Hike at San Bruno Mountain

Thursday, November 12, 2020

Ever wish you could travel to the Moon and back? What about to Neptune?

Our solar system is larger than the eye can see, but not farther than you can hike with our newest exhibit: Solar System to Scale in San Bruno Mountain Park.

Walk from the sun to the eight planets in its orbit with educational panels about each planet along the way in this Solar System that is 670 million times smaller than in space!

This exhibit is a celebration of National Astronomy Week, which runs from November 14-21. It'll only be up for a few months so be sure not to miss it. The Solar System Route is also the route of the Take A Hike Challenge.

Check out this great website that allows you to travel the solar system at scale.
