Sometimes an animated visualization is needed to fully understand, or at least begin to understand, the amazing variety of objects that make up our solar system.
Planetary astronomer James O'Donoghue The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has done just that. He posted a short animation on Twitter that begins with the dwarf planet Ceres, showing the size of the solar system's objects, including Earth, and ends with a zoom in on the sun.
Even if Know the relative size of everything in the solar system, you will still be amazed at the size of the sun in front of Jupiter, and you may never have even imagined how fast Jupiter rotates relative to Earth.
It's good to have some time to watch Assign these rotating items. This clip is only about 55 seconds long, but as amazing as it is, you'll probably want to watch it several times.

The dimensions, axes, and rotations in this video are all on a precise scale, and only the position of the planets and other objects has changed. All the planets and objects you see are close together to fit in a picture frame.
If you want to know some of the numbers behind the scientific animation, our planet is 12,742 kilometers wide and in The diameter of Jupiter is 139,820 km and more than 10 times that of Earth.
The diameter of the Sun is 1.39 million km, so its circumference is about 10 times larger than Jupiter and more than 100 times larger than Earth. . In other words, about a million planets could land on the sun. He has now compiled a collection of several videos that beautifully illustrate the amazing scales of the solar system.
