What The Sun Looks Like From Every Planet In Our Solar System

After watching these spectacular photos, you will understand that we, Earthlings, still quite well settled!

Whatever you say, our solar system is a very picturesque corner of the universe. You will come out for the outskirts of Outer space, and the soul rejoices at the sight of the rings of Saturn, the red dusty storms of Mars or the row of the surface of the mercury.

The American artist Ron Miller, specializing in illustrations on the cosmic theme, reasoned about this. He decided to capture the landscapes of all the planets orbiting the sun as believable as possible.

The artist focused on how the sun looks from the surface of each planet, because, of course, its appearance depends on the distance on which they are located. To be precise, the brightness of the sun is equivalent to the square of the relative distance from it. "For example, on Pluto, the sun itself will look like a bright object in the sky, but because of the remoteness of the planet you will feel that you are constantly in the twilight," said the artist in an interview with IFLScience

Here's how the sun looks with each of the planets in the Solar System.

Venus, which is 108 million kilometers (67 million miles) from the Sun. As depicted here, the planet is covered in pancake volcanism and a suffocating, carbon dioxide-rich atmosphere.

Earth
