Instead of the moon

The Moon is the only natural satellite of the Earth,and the fifth largest satellite in the Solar System. It is the largest natural satellite of a planet in the Solar System relative to the size of its primary having 27% the diameter and 60% the density of Earth, resulting in 181 its mass. The Moon is the second densest satellite after Io, a satellite of Jupiter. The moon is about 386,242 miles from Earth. Our moon is certainly not low. More than that - it is big enough to be a full planet, of course, if it revolved around the sun, not the earth. The moon is a quarter the diameter of Earth. Only Pluto larger satellites relative to the size of the planet around which it revolves. We invite you to see how the other planets would look if they were at the scene of the moon.

1. So, the moon, as we see it quite often.

2. Mercury - the smallest planet in the solar system. In size it seems like the moon.

3. Mars. The Red Planet is almost twice the moon, so that in the sky above the Earth, it would have looked better.

4. Venus in three and a half times the moon and six times brighter. It is the hottest planet - its surface temperature is about 400 degrees.

5. Neptune is 14 times greater than the Moon. That's such a huge blue sphere it would look in our skies.

6. Uranium even more and would have looked like this.

7. Saturn is 35 times greater than the Moon, and its rings would be stretched almost from horizon to horizon.

8. Jupiter is 40 times greater than the Moon. It is so big that we could not see any of the northern or southern pole of the planet.
