Ever wondered how far the planets are from each other?
The planets are shown in corresponding scale. Unlike most models, which are compressed for viewing convenience, the planets here are also shown at their true-to-scale average distances from the Sun.
This means you need to do a lot of scrolling. I can only suggest this website for people with access to mice controls, no tablets or touchpads here. Finding the planets can be kind of difficult and the lack of graduation in the background can make it hard to judge how fast you are scrolling, however once you do start finding the planets you can get a feel for the distances between them that is impressive.
