The always cool Yeti Dynamics has released another brilliant scientific simulation: What would Earth's sky look like if Saturn went off its orbit to race into the inner solar system on its way to the Sun and our planet was on its path? I just love these impossible but visually arresting scenarios.
Of course, aside from the awesome view and the meteor fireworks, many other things would happen. Saturn's tidal forces, for example, would wreak havoc on Earth. Not to talk about its gravity sending us on a completely different—and deadly—orbit. But, visually, this is what we would see. And what a way to go that would be.

I'd like to see an animation (or movie?) of the sky as we slowly float out of orbit into space.
