Caption

Eise Eisinga Planetarium, close-up of the control mechanisms. This planetarium is the oldest working orrery (mechanical model of the solar system) in the world. In the late 1700s, a prediction of the end of the world resulting from planetary conjunctions, led to panic in Friesland in the Netherlands. Eisinga, an amateur astronomer, built this planetarium in the ceiling of his living room to show that the fears were unfounded. Photographed in June 2018, in Franecker, Friesland, the Netherlands.
