The NJAA Virtual Solar System
On June 15, 2002, we dedicated our carefully constructed Solar System model. This gift from 3M, in cooperation with Project ASTRO NOVA and Voorhees High School is designed to educate those who take the 1/4 mile stroll. There are a handful of scale models available for perusal in the U.S., but this new addition to Voorhees State Park is a real standout.

Voorhees State Park
Voorhees, NJ USA

Is the model an Orrery?: yes
