Walk the Planets
February 5 @ 10:00 am to 11:30 am
Take a journey from the sun to the farthest reaches of our solar system–on foot! Bill Ralston leads this thousand-yard walk that models our solar system at a scale that makes the reality of our neighborhood in space both understandable and awe-inspiring. Common objects such as bowling balls, peppercorns and walnuts are used to represent the sun and planets—our feet are the rockets that will get us there! Suitable ages 9 and up. Dress for the weather, and to walk about one mile on level, but uneven ground. Meet at the parking area for Compton Bridge Conservation Area on County Road 11C. This event is part of the Cooperstown Winter Carnival. Free.
