A simple orrery, as simple as possible, as accurate as possible. Now with improved aesthetics :D.
About this creation




A simple mechanical orrery, built with as little gears as possible, but yet as precise as possible. IRL There are 91.25 days in 1/4 of a year, I got about 90. Sorry for the reupload of basically the same MOC, but I've gotten comments regarding picture quality, and hope this is better :P.

In the LDD file, assuming everything worked out as it should've, WHITE are the input gears and the axles, RED is the sun rotation mechanism, which later rotates the Earth and the moon marked in BLUE. The yellow gears and axles are for rotating the Earth around the Sun.
