Copernican System Model
07676

Features all 10 planetary orbits. The motions of the planets, their relative sizes and distances from one another are illustrated in this attractive model. This model enables the student to "see" and "feel" what the Solar System looks like. The student will be able to visualize the physical relationships between the planets and the sun, and realize a better understanding of the various motions of the planets. When used with Ptolemaic System, all the problems of the real and apparent motions become clear. Stainless steel arms. Instruction book, ?Worlds in Motion," is included.

Ptolemaic System Model
Ptolemaic System Model
07749

The Solar System as seen from earth. This model shows the five planets and moon as Ptolemy described them in his famous book, "The Almagest". It describes accurately all the naked eye phenomena of our Solar System. The fact that most of the motions described by this geocentric system are incorrect cannot detract from the fact that to the unaided human eye all these incorrectly described motions appear correct. The use of the Ptolemaic model together with the Copernican model improves student understanding of the motions of the heavenly bodies. 14" high x 20" long. With fully-illustrated instruction book.
