Hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving day. A topic came up during a turkey discussion about the size of the universe, and how it compares to the size of earth. I found a couple decent videos on youtube, but nothing that could make someone (my grandmother) say "holy s###".
Any such videos you know of?

The 1977 classic is good, Powers of Ten™ (1977)



A re-do of sorts with modern graphics and HD, so watch this one full screen:

Cosmic Voyage (1080p)


If you just want to compare sizes of stars and planets, this is the best one I've found...I even like the sound track:

To even get a close idea for our feeble perceptions, I'd compare the Earth's size to that of a grain of sand compared to the size of our Milky Way galaxy, one galaxy out of possibly billions.

Nothing like a good kick to the ego to keep it in check.

You're welcome, yes it is great work, unfortunately not mine.

I'll be interested to see if anyone finds anything better but those are the best I know of.
