The Milky Way
structure model is helpful in visualizing the shape of our galaxy, and also our
place within it. It shows the shape of the galaxy, the distribution of clusters
of stars spiral arms, and other related celestial objects within a coordinate
system. The importance of this model
is to provide a visual concept of the galaxy in which our Earth is located as
well as to provide some information regarding other objects within it. As
with all of the models produced by Trippensee Planetarium Co., 90 years of
producing models for educators has led to a series of products which are
designed to last for many, many years, and which are made to be handled and
used. An instruction book, The Milky Way Galaxy Model, is
included with this model.
