All The Planets, Aligned In One Beautiful Picture

There are so many beautiful pictures of our Solar System, it can be difficult to keep up.

This picture helps you put it in perspective.

One Imgur user has managed to combine every planet in our Solar System into one, perfectly aligned image. The picture lets you compare the colour, atmosphere and make-up of each planet directly against each other - revealing the diversity of our home out here in the Western Spiral Arm of the Milky Way.

What it doesn't show - of course - is the differences in size (all of the pictures are adjusted to fit the alignment). But it's still a pretty dramatic representation of the planets, like you've never seen before.
