My Grand Tour of the Solar System 2018

Recommended Posts

Some artistic licence with getting the sizes right. mercury appears as a blurred red dot as it's blown up three times from a single Jpeg of it in an orange sunset sky, darkened to make the background black but it is still showing it's just off the horizon colour.

It's a fun project to do. Mars looks like it was a bit dusty when captured.

I did one a few years ago but wasn't concerned about having realistic size comparisons. I stuck the Sun, Moon and a circular cropped Earth sunset for my Earth.

Earth seems to be missing ?.

Nice shooting man. I guess you can say that you've seen it all now.

That's nice!

Venus stands out for its shape. It's the prettiest of the lot.
