Scale […of the planets vs the Moon]


Now this is neat. It’s a vid showing the relative sizes of several planets, including the Earth, as they would appear in a hypothetical sky at the same distance from that world as that of the orbital mean range of our own faithful companion body, Luna.

And no, Jupiter does not literally fill up the entire sky, as the video does not represent the sky in full view.

It is damned impressive though, with the size of our humble little satellite being used as the benchmark for comparison.

To get the full effect, I recommend watching this in Hi-Def fullscreen mode.
