If you're ever in the St. Louis area and have an interest in astronomy, you might want to visit the Delmar Loop Planet Walk in University City-a scale model of the solar system.
There are nine stations-one for each planet plus the Sun. (Pluto is not included, because it's not considered a planet any more.) Each sign has a depiction of the planet at the top and then a list of fun facts about it below.If you're familiar with the area, the Walk is on the north side of the 6100 to 6600 blocks of Delmar. It starts near the Moonrise Hotel and goes west. Each inch of the sidewalk represents 80,000 miles, and the marker's distance from one to the next is to scale.
