Features The Grand Orrery by Rowley and Ferguson's Orrery. An orrery is a machine simulates the positions and motions of the planets and moons in the Solar System. The first orrery was made in 1704. One was given to the Earl of Orrery, hence their name. They are usually clockwork with a globe representing the Sun at the centre, and a planet at the end of each arm.
Based on an engraving from 1802 by George Kearsley, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
