Loved finding the solar system. Definitely start in the visitors information center in Houlton to see Pluto (or one of the 3 locations of Pluto). The ladies at the info center are very helpful and can get you the brochure for the solar system, which is helpful for locating some of the smaller planets. It hailed while we were there... 更多
Searching for the planets was a fun way to pass the time between Presque Isle and Houlton! The smaller ones are easy to miss but Saturn and Jupiter really stand out. I wasn't expecting the first ones to be so close to UMPI but, since they're to scale, that makes sense. The scale is the most amazing part of this... 更多
We enjoyed stopping at every planet along the road from Houlton to Presque Isle. This is a wonderful sight-seeing experience for a family and for lovers of learning of all ages!

I love pointing the planets out to the kids! It's something that other areas don't have. Creative! They need to be maintained however...they're starting to look a little rough.
