The Orbit Tellurium is an apparatus for demonstrating the motions of the Earth, the Sun and the Moon.
Demonstrate Day, Night, the seasons and more
The tellurium includes two different sizes of models for the Earth and the Moon. This enables a range of phenomena to be demonstrated in a visual and engaging way, including day and night, seasons, the motion of the Sun across the sky, changing amounts of daylight, phases of the moon and solar and lunar eclipses.
The shadows produced by the models are clear and easy to see, thanks to the bright light with Sunbeam reflector which represents the Sun.
Manual and Automatic Rotation
The movement of the Earth, Sun and Moon can be set to automatic, helping to provide an overall impression of their movements. The tellurium can also be rotated manually, providing an in-depth look at each celestial occurrence.
