6 elegant design compositions for visualizing Solar System's celestial bodies size comparison.
Graphic 1: Solar system planets, dwarf planets, and major moons to scale. Extreme high-quality PNG download: 7000 px × 9600px. Alternative only graphic no text version PNG included. Also includes a Photoshop .PSD editable file with all text in separate layers for translations and style adaptations.
Graphic 2: Solar System planets, major moons, and representative stars to scale with 3 zoom levels. Extreme high-quality PNG download: 7000 px × 21000px. Alternative no labels and vertical/horizontal versions PNG included. Also includes a Photoshop .PSD editable file with all text in separate layers for translations and style adaptations.
Graphic 3: All the Solar System planets plus dwarf planet Pluto fit almost perfectly between Earth and its Moon. Here is an infographic putting that into a visual perspective. Extreme high-quality PNG and JPG download: 11850px × 7100px (for a maximum 10 x 6 feet printing size!) Includes a Photoshop .PSD editable file with all text in separate layers for translations and style adaptations.
Detailed diagram showing all objects between Earth and Moon including spaceships, big near-Earth asteroids (past and future), and the Moon at its different distances from Earth. A variant detailed scale diagram of a Moon-Earth solar eclipse seen from the side is included.
Schematic view to scale of known objects between the Sun and our nearest star system: Alpha Centauri. The objects depicted include the Kuiper belt, notable comets and asteroids, inner torus-shaped Hills/Oort Cloud, outer spherical Oort cloud, and known past and future near passing stars.
How would you explain the Earth's address to intelligent beings from another star system? Currently, astronomers no longer think that a pulsars map would be useful (there are too many pulsars in the galaxy to be able to make a map with discernible references). Now it is thought that the best way to indicate where we are from is a diagram with the properties of the celestial bodies of reference). Here is an example of a pictorial message towards a potential ETI in Proxima Centauri.
