Queckbronn Things to Do: 15 reviews and 29 photos
From the text panel we learn that the existence of the planet Neptune was predicted by two astronomers in 1845 and was actually sighted through a telescope in Berlin in 1846.
The prediction was based on irregularities in the orbit of Uranus, which suggested that there must be another large planet out there somewhere.
In the model Neptune is represented by a blue ball on a somewhat tilted orbit (29.6 degrees of tilt). The model is now located directly in the ex-village of Queckbronn.
