Solar System: Orion

$9.00 - $12.00

The designs in this series incorporate various representations for these systems:
Constellations: The constellation the system is located in, or associated with (Solar System), is mid-raised in the metal background of the design. Stars that are part of the perceived pattern in the constellation are represented by diamonds, while background stars are circles.
Stars: The largest metal circle in each design is to scale with the screen printed planets.
Planets: The order the planets are printed are innermost (top) to outermost (bottom). The metal circles also represent the planets, to a more clear scale, though they are not in any particular order.

Pin Details: 40mm, Gold metal with mid-raised metal constellation background, translucent enamel, screen print
Of course it makes perfect sense if your favorite system is our own Solar System! Our sun is not part of a constellation, so the background of this design is the constellation Orion. I chose Orion for this design as our system is located in the Orion Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. The Orion constellation has 5 significant stars in this arm with us: Betelguse, Rigel, and the three stars of Orion's Belt.
