pictures solar system
Can you give me an idea of our solar system to scale?
If the sun were the size of a balloon basketball on the goal line of a football field, Earth would be about the size of a pea on the line of court fifty. Jupiter would be a baseball on the other goal line. Saturn was a tennis ball on a sheet of paper in the boxes. Pluto would be a grain of sand out in the parking lot. And the star in closest would be about five or ten miles away.The Moon would be a grain of sand about two inches from the Earth. Kind of put things in perspective, is that not …?
