MAYO — Children looking for a space adventure this summer can jump around the solar system in Mayo.

Staff at the Lafayette County Public Library have created "Jump to Jupiter" at the Veteran’s Memorial Park.

Participants jump through a course from the grapefruit-sized “Sun,” past poppy-seed-sized “Earth,” and on to marble-sized “Jupiter” — and beyond.

By counting the jumps needed to reach each object, children experience first-hand the vast scale of the solar system.
