As part of an astronomy course at Wondertree Learning Centre, we are planning a day at the beach where we will make a model of the Solar System in the sand. In this model the Sun is a 500 mm diameter ball and Pluto is over 2 km away. More about this as the project develops.

[The image on this page was missing for a long time. I had posted it at a service run by http://webshots.com called AllYouCanUpload. The faq promised that the image would be there ‘forever.’ When webshots was bought by American Greeting management deleted all of AllYouCanUpload pictures. I have found a copy of of the picture for this post but many on this blog have been lost.]
