I saw this picture on twitter. I'm a little bit skeptical on how accurate it is.

Im no expert on the sizes of the planets and how they would appear if they were the same distance away as the moon.

I was thinking Jupiter should appear much bigger.

Thoughts?

Typical - Pluto gets dissed again. Pluto always gets the rough-end of the stick and imo I put this down to astro-discrimination

Here's an article about the images you're asking about, and the man who made them. It also touches on how and why he made them. h ttp://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2013/06/what-the-night-sky-would-look-like-if-the-other-planets-were-as-close-as-the-moon/277247/

Jupiter takes up the entire sky. That's not big enough for you?

How is it not big enough for you? It's taking up the whole frame. As in... If you looked up all you could see was death coming to swallow you up. The only way they could have made it bigger was to make a whole other frame just for it....

How much bigger could it be portrayed? How much bigger?? How much? Lol

I'm having nightmares of Melancholia tonight as it is.

Bigger he said...

Actually, if anything it looks too big.

EDIT:

Yep. Here's the original uncropped image (from Blazemore2000's link The Atlantic):

Makes me feel queasy and lightheaded. If it was there from my birth, I wouldn't know any difference. If I woke up with it in the sky, any of them, I would likely go a bit mad.

I know it sounds crazy but the images give me vertigo.

Keep in mind, Jupiter's red spot is almost 3 times the size of earth.

I think it should be bigger, too. Maybe not by much, but bigger.

ETA:

Can anyone find a picture of Jupiter from one of its moons?

Those planets are huge, especially compared to Earth, so if they were as close to us as our nearest celestial neighbor I believe that pic would be accurate.

Hmm interesting. So you're saying we could fit about 30 Earths in Uranus? Seems like a tough task.

You went there.

Quick back of the napkin math here; the Moon's diameter is about a quarter of the Earth's and if 3 Earths fit in the Red Spot with a little room to spare, then it would appear somewhere in the vicinity of 12x the size of the full Moon. So here I took the original picture with the full Moon, cut the Moon out of it and pasted it 12x into the picture with Jupiter:



So it actually seems dead on assuming that the scale of the Moon in the original image is correct.
