Part of the museum's Hayden Planetarium exhibits, the model does represent the sizes of the planets, but not the relative distances between the Sun and the planets. If that was the case, and the planetarium was the sun, then Earth would have to be placed two miles away in Times Square.
West 81st Street and Central Park West
New York, NY USA
