Photographer Ron Miller creates incredible pictures of what it would look like if planets were closer.
An astronomical artist has created eye-opening illustrations imagining what the night sky would look like if the moon was replaced by the other planets in the solar system.
Ron Miller, a former art director for NASA, used digital trickery to superimpose scale drawings of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune over the same landscape, highlighting the sheer size of the planets.
The incredible drawings imagine each planet to be 233,812 miles from Earth – the same distance at which the moon orbits.
