A Jaw-Dropping Rendering of Our Solar System

I was amazed when I saw this stunning rendering of our Solar System by an artists named Licoti.

The huge 30,000 pixel-wide image includes all the planets (and poor Pluto!) as well as its major satellites.

The image alone is a thing of beauty, but the guided tour in this video is even better.

  1. I hate to admit that the only thing I could think of while watching this was the Bugenhagen planetarium scene in Cosmo Canyon in Final Fantasy VII.

    All joking aside, this is pretty amazing.

  2. That was great. I got this week’s goosebump quota out of the way now. Thanks for posting it, John.

     

    P.S. And what does “draw-dropping” mean?

     

  3. Lord I hate “world” music. Booooooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring.

  4. @Mike P.: It’s like “jaw dropping”, only from the keyboard of a buffon.  Fixed now.

  5. Halley’s Comet’s tail is pointing the wrong direction
