Event Description:
Attend the official unveiling and dedication of the Grand Orrery built by CU engineering students in the Andrews Hall Residential College!

The grand orrery is a mechanical planetary system that illustrates the relative positions and motions of both the inner and outer planets. It was designed so that the orbiting speeds of each planet are accurate in relation to one another, but they are scaled up so that the motion of the planets can be enjoyed by a casual observer.
