Space is huge and the planets that occupy the solar system are pretty gosh darn big aren’t they? There have been quite a few images on the Internet that compare the relative sizes of these planets, and artist Brad Goodspeed adds his perspective to it in his creative video entitled Scale.
After watching a lunar eclipse, Goodspeed wondered how large the Earth would look like it were there in place of the moon. He shows this in his video along with all the other planets, as if they orbited our world as the moon does. There are reportedly some small errors with Goodspeed’s calculations (you boffins can read that here) but that doesn’t take away from the sense of scale he is trying to show in the video. Check it out below.
