An orrery is a mechanical device that illustrates motions and the relative positions of the planets and moons in the Solar System in a heliocentric model.They are typically driven by a motor or a clockwork mechanism with a globe representing the Sun at the centre, and with a planet at the end of each of the arms. Though the Greeks had working planetaria, the first orrery that was a planetarium of the modern era was produced in 1704, and one was presented to the Earl of Orrery --- whence the name came. An orrery can be seen as a scale model of our solar system.The first modern orrery was made circa 1704 by Thomas Tompion and George Graham.Graham gave the first model (or its design) to the celebrated instrument maker John Rowley lived in London,in order to make a copy for Prince Eugene of Savoy. Rowley made ather copy for his patron Charles Boyle,4th Earl of Orrery, from which the model took its name.This device was given to Charles' son John as present,later the 5th Earl. Its importance was partially in that mechanical scale models of the solar system and the universe, correctly named planetariums gained the name Orrery.I have a beautiful orrery(solar system scale model).Get it at http://www.orrerystore.com
