A Sense of Planetary Scale

by Nancy Atkinson on January 29, 2011

Scale from Brad Goodspeed on Vimeo.

This is great! Blogger Brad Goodspeed created an animation which shows different planets in our solar system as they would appear in the sky if it shared an orbit with our Moon, 380,000 km from earth. On his blog, he said he created it “to make you feel small.” You succeeded, Brad!

He explains how he created the video on his blog, BradBlogSpeed.com
