A SCALE model of the Earth is set to move to Barnsley College at the end of the month.

Gaia Earth, an exact, scaled model of our planet, is on show at Wentworth Woodhouse until Sunday.

The piece, by artist Luke Jerram, measures seven metres in diameter and is 1.8 million times smaller than the real Earth. It will be brought to life as it rotates every four minutes 360 times faster than our real planet.

As part of the town’s Bright Nights event, it will be on show at Barnsley College from November 28 to 30.
