If Saturn was close to Earth…can you imagine seeing this every night?? I'd never go to sleep till morning.

If Saturn was close to Earth…

Except the asteroid belt would collide with Earth, and the planet would be too close as not to do the same. Plus the gravity would be flubbed up and Earth would orbit Saturn.

What it would look like if the other planets were as close to Earth as the moon is.

What the night sky would look like if the other planets in our solar system were as close to earth as the moon -- pluto.

Planets Aligned With Giza Pyramids. Probably an artistic representation, but I think they do actually come close to alignment.

A miniature version of the Nile River, seen on Saturn’s moon Titan by the international Cassini mission. The river valley stretches more than 400 km from its ‘headwaters’ to a large sea, and likely contains hydrocarbons. The image was acquired on 26 September 2012, on Cassini’s 87th close flyby of Titan.    Read more at: http://phys.org/news/2012-12-cassini-mini-nile-river-saturn.html#jCp

Is that the River Nile? But it is the biggest river ever imaged on another world. White liquid methane rapids rafting on Titan anyone?

If planets were in the place of the moon…Helps me put the size of them into perspective. God is so creative!

The Black Widow Pulsar

The “Black Widow” pulsar moves at a speed of KM/hr. A bow shock wave is the greenish crescent shape. The pressure behind the bow shock creates a second shock wave that sweeps the cloud of high-energy particles back from the pulsar to form the cocoon.

Giant Blue Planet Discovered  Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have, for the first time, determined the true color of a planet orbiting another star. If seen up close this planet, known as HD 189733b, would be a deep azure blue, reminiscent of Earth’s color as seen from space.

This illustration shows HD a huge gas giant that orbits very close to its host star HD The planet's atmosphere is scorching with a temperature of over 1000 degrees Celsius, and it rains glass, sideways, in howling 7000 kilometer-per-hour winds.

If Saturn was as close to the Earth as the Moon is... wow.

Science Is Awesome. If Saturn was as close to earth as the moon is , this is how it would look.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft took six images on May 6, 2012, to give us this natural-color portrait of Saturn. To give you some idea of the (ridiculous) scale of these objects, when Cassini took the pictures, it was about 483,000 miles away from Saturn's moon, Titan, which, at 3,200 miles across, is the planet's largest moon -- larger than the planet Mercury.

Voyager 1, the man-made object farthest away from Earth, has sailed from Florida, out of Earth's orbit, beyond Mars, beyond the gas giants of Jupiter and Saturn, and may now have left the heliosphere -- the tiny dot in the universe beholden to our sun.

Get Ready, Because Voyager I Is *This Close* to Leaving Our Solar System

Has the Voyager I spacecraft become the first human creation to "officially" leave the solar system?
