The Size of the Sun As Seen From Each Planet


What It Shows

Super simple, not much as far as style, but a fun concept done cleanly and clearly. This infographic shows relative sizes of the sun in the sky depending on which planet you would be looking at it from.

Why It’s Good

I know there isn’t a ton going on here, but I’m amazed at how powerful it is, mostly because it’s just not something I ever thought of. There’s something moving about thinking of this many-times-larger Mercurial sun, or the cold distance from Saturn.

What It’s Missing

It’s pretty damn ugly. I’d like to see someone artsify this one.
