Spectacular rendering of the solar system to scale


Spectacular rendering of the solar system to scale
The planets above are but a fraction of what the sun has spit out during sun flares (over the course of the sun's existence). Most of the sun's spittle is in the outer reaches of the solar system, and beyond it. Much more is within the solar system, waiting to be discovered. Only a fraction ever will be because of its small under-the-radar, mass.

I don't know about you, but every time I'm reminded about the huge scale of the universe, I mentally re-evaluate my own life and my relationship with what is around me. This amazing illustration by Roberto Ziche's with the Sun and the planets laying on the floor makes that comparison even more impressive.

The Sun is, obviously, in the background. And in the foreground: Mercury, Venus, Earth and the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and dwarf planets, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris.
