|Earth (12600 km), with its satellite Moon (3500 km)|
|Venus is about the same size as Earth|
|Suddenly dwarfed in comparison with Neptune and Uranus|
|Jupiter's diameter is 143,000 km|
|All pale in comparison with our Sun - 1,392,000 kilometers !|
|Sun is not the largest star in our galaxy, Sirius something bigger at ~2,500,000km|
|Pollux is about 8.3 times of Sun|
|Arcturus is about 31 times the size of Sun.|
|Aldebaran is 51 times. Sun is a mere dot in this pic.|
|VV Cephei is about 2400 light years away from Earth|
|Canis Majoris is ~2000 times our Sun|
At this point we, our earth, cannot even be represented. All of this within our Milky Way or nearby galaxy. The Milky Way, Akash Ganga galaxy itself is about 1 million light-years in diameter. The solar system is not at the center of the galaxy, as is normally represented.
So, if it took God (as supposed some where), 6 days to create our planet, and one day to rest, i strangely feel (s)he is still working somewhere.
At end of this, i wonder if this is the right time to bring up my problem with including and positioning large images in my blog.
I tried to locate the original pictures, in an effort to find out the authenticity too. Unfortunately no luck there, and apparently several people also tried the same without luck. So bless the person or persons who created this. I assembled these from two or more sites. It took me over a week or so do this, i have almost lost the sites where i picked up which pictures. But if you do a simple search for 'earth size perspective' you will hit a dozen, refine your searches and see more refined(?) versions.
