The number of moons orbiting the planets of our solar system represents an incredible diversity of celestial bodies that inhabit this small piece of the universe. The satellites they call this cosmic environment come in all iterations, from oblong, sunken, and lumpy to marble-smooth, cratered, and pocket-like.
It is difficult to wrap your head around such variations in size, shape, and surface features without rolling them all out and comparing them to the scale of some of the world’s greatest monuments and horizons.
To help with these observations, curious people at MetaBallStudios have created a new informative video that drips an eclectic assortment of glorious and infamous moons on Earth to see how they would all appear if they suddenly hit our planet.
Take a look at Saturn’s tiny Aegaeon, Mars’ massive rock called Deimos, Saturn’s Charon’s round globe, and Jupiter’s epic sphere Europa, as they all slip into our crust and provide a convenient way to enlarge them all. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either.
From this point of view, it is astonishing to see how small some moons look when they are located in a familiar environment. According to the latest data from NASA, there are 214 identifiable months floating in the solar system, representing 158 confirmed months and 56 temporary months, the ones we theorize could be outside or noticed, but have not yet been confirmed.
And the wealth of spinning companions is not what could be called righteous no matter how you cut it into slices, with gas giant Jupiter taking the lion’s share with a total of 79, 26 of which are waiting for official names, down to poor mercury without one. month to call your own.
Anyone for giving our beautiful pale moon an appropriate name?
