The promenade has a series of metal plates embedded in the floor which demonstrate two scales in the solar system: distances and sizes. This unique journey that ends at the end of the Avenida with a signpost pointing to Polaris, and a wheel-planisphere which helps nighttime visitors to locate the circumpolar constellations: the Big Dipper and Cassiopeia.
