Our scale model sculpture trail of the solar system animated the banks of the River Foyle for four weeks from 22 April - 22 May 2022. From breaking the Guinness World Record for the most number of astronauts ever gathered together, to exploring Earth's role within the solar system with discussions, tours and family-friendly events, Derry~Londonderry was out-of-this world!
The trail launched in Derry~Londonderry on 22 April. Beginning in Bay Road Park, the trail ran along the river Foyle through the city centre, before heading across the river to the Waterside greenway to Pluto. At a scale of 591 million to 1, the trail spanned 8.5km through the heart of the city.
Follow the banks of the river Foyle as you explore our epic Solar System!
