What the view would really be if the other planets were to actually come as close to the Earth as the moon:

I always thought this was pretty cool:

What if Earth had rings like Saturn

If Saturn was centred on the moon's orbit we'd be crushed by millions of tons of ice as we collided with the rings...........

PreMortem: Why is Earth's moon "The Moon" but all other planets moons are named?


Actually it's Luna. The sun is Sol. Hence the "Solar System" while other stars are named XXXX System where 4X is the name of the largest star.

Mikey1969: The only thing I don't understand about this is why Venus is the only one casting light. Obviously if Jupiter were that big and close, it would light things up more than the moon currently does, but the sky is the same illumination in every picture except Venus'. It's like the guy forgot that part in all pof the other pics.


It's probably because Venus reflects just about all the light hitting it. I actually don't think it's bright enough. And you wouldn't see the cloud bands, those are only visible in UV light. It would basically be a blinding disk in the sky of maybe a pale ivory color.

Another thing people don't realize is the Moon is really dark. It's basically the color of an asphalt parking lot. Here's a nice comparison between the Earth and the Moon:

Other than that, this is totally cool... Can you imagine how farked up our planet would be if Jupiter was that close to us? We definitely wouldn't be here, and might be as volcanically active as Io.

I thought it was "Luna" but we just called it "The Moon".

Mars in orbit would be cool...except for all the coastal floods from extra large tidal changes and earthquakes and climate changes...

Sometimes we call it Luna.

threedingers: Tr0mBoNe: What about the moons of those new moons? How big would Io or Titan be?

Ganymede and Titan are 5262km and 5150km in diameter respectively (vs. 3475km for the Moon), so they would look a little less than double the size of the moon, or about two finger widths held at arm's length.

Callisto is next with a diameter of 4821km, then Io at 3643km. Io would appear pretty much exactly the same size as the Moon.

When Uranus is as close as the moon, it is big, bright and shiny.

Shouldn't the rings of Neptune and Uranus be faintly visible?
