Space is Big

That big object at the top of the image below, as you no doubt recognized, is Earth's Moon.

You may not have recognized that little dot at the bottom center of the image. It's Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system.

They were close and not close last night.

That little dot is actually forty times larger (in diameter) than the big object.

Forty times.

Space is really big.
