Atlanta Solar System

I’d long had an idea of mapping out a to-scale solar system in town. My first idea was to have the Sun as the 15 foot circle at Findley Plaza in L5P and continue down Euclid Ave. But that didn’t map out too great as a pirate activity as I was hoping to attach planet placards to various street signs along the way and no scales seemed to match up.

Agnes Scott has come to my rescue! https://www.agnesscott.edu/bradleyobservatory/mass/index.html

The Metro Atlanta Solar System project has planet markers from Decatur out to Sweetwater Creek State Park. I consider my work here done.
