Kaero posted a topic in LEGO Technic and Model TeamRyu Wakimoto made wonderfull Orrery with Earth tilt, see: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-9044/sidebook/planet-orrery/#bi I have modified it slightly: removed cover of the stand to show internal gears, added shining Sun and other small changes. And I have made instructions with some details about function and real motion of planet and moon. Orrery was already tested in astronomical learning group for kids at observatory in my city. Kids enjoyed it a lot. A shining Sun is a huge source of learning and fun. Maybe a lot of you have seen orrery by JKBrickworks. This one has a huge improvement: Earth rotation axis is tilted. Therefore following features can be shown using this orrery: Orrery simulates: 1, Sun rotation, 2, Earth orbit, 3, Earth rotation, 4, tilt of Earth axis 5, Moon orbit, 6, Moon rotation. A rotating Sun can be used to show rotation of Sun. A shining Sun can be used to show phases of moon, illumination of Earth during seasons, polar day/night, lunar or solar eclipse. Either motor or hand can be used to rotate orrery. Model deficiencies: Moon eclipse comes every single orbit of moon due to limited size of the model. New moon always cause solar eclipse due to limited size of the model. Sun rotation is independent on latitude. All source files (even for instructions) are at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jsgn7lhblmgi4ja/AADIiNpdXUFmLksekZUZMmIPa?dl=0 You can take a look at this lousy video: Instructions should be mostly OK, but I would be happy if someone other will build it and tell me about problems or caveeats.

The Sun Chariot (Danish: Solvognen) is one of the most famous Danish archaeological finds. The sculpture was made in the Bronze Age about 1350 BC. The sculpture was discovered in 1902 in a peat bog on the Trundholm moor. It is now in the collection of the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen. Since 2011 The Sun Chariot has been portrayed at the Danish 1000-krone banknote. This gave my the inspiration to build a 1:1 MOC of the Sun Chariot. My MOC show how the Sun Chariot looked like when it was new and undamaged. I have only used two different colours in this MOC: Dark Bluish Gray and Pearl Gold. The assortment of pearl gold parts are not large. Therefore I had to build the whole gold circle of this five kinds of parts:
