ST3029 : The Sun

near to Hedging, Somerset, Great Britain

The Sun
The Sun
The centrepiece of the Somerset Space Walk. I am trying to calculate the "scale" of the model. I walked as far as Jupiter which was about a mile away from the sun, but in reality it's almost 500 million miles, so I'd say 1:500 million but I have heard 1:50 million quoted.
