Scale of the Universe

If all of our planets were as far away as the moon, how large would they appear in the sky? Brad Goodspeed created this video in After Effects, making all the planets in scale with one another. "Here's an animation I did to make you feel small, and also convey the deep awe I feel at the feet of the Universe," he says.

  • Being in astronomy last quarter I saw a diagram drawn to scale of Earth compared to Jupiter. I thought that made us look small, but this visual he provided did a far better job!
  • Woah, Jupiter is one big planet!
