Solar System Model: Uranus

Field review by the editors.

Bridgewater, Maine

One planet among eight -- and one planetoid, sorry, Pluto -- that define The Largest Complete Three-Dimensional Scale Model of the Solar System in the World, which extends for 40 miles along US Hwy 1 in Aroostock County. The real Uranus is four times bigger than the Earth, but the 1-to-93-million scale of the model reduces it to a baby blue ball atop a pole at the side of the road.

Still, you might be caught in its gravity of first level texting quips: "Dude! We're looking at Uranus!"
