Video Shows A Scaled Size Comparison Of Objects In Space

The universe is so vast, it can be hard to think about it in a tangible way.

When you hear about the different sizes of different planets and celestial elements, it’s not always easy to fully grasp the scale and gravity of those things.

Thankfully, Global Data has simplified this by creating a celestial 3D animation that compares the scaled size of astronomical objects.

In the video, you can see how different things compare in size, starting with fairly “small” Dwarf Planets and ending with the massive Supercluster Laniakea which is some 500 million light years wide and home to the entire Milky Way Galaxy plus many others.

In between the smallest and the largest, you can see how planet Earth compares in size to familiar planets like Venus and Neptune, as well as lesser-known celestial formations like Elnath and Pollux, two giant stars.

It’s really incredible to think about how tiny we are in the grand scheme of things. What’s even more amazing is how much space is out there to explore!

“In this video we made 3d Comparison of Universe and this is real scale comparison and this is 3d animated comparison video,” the company wrote in the video’s description.
