  7. Yeah, the video should have included all planets, as well as the whole issue of some planets having a stronger gravitational pull than ours; where it would more like we’d be their moon (or one of them) if they were that close.

    Jupiter is nothing compared to our sun…
    And our sun is nothing compared to several other stars out there…

    Some stars are so immense that our sun is just a little dot compared to it.

  13. I am disappointed that ALL of the planets were not featured. I was so looking forward to Saturn.

  25. Gee you’d think that they would have the earth spinning the right way.
    As they show it the sunrise would be coming up in the west.

      Jesus Christ talk about nitpicking. Seems like a lot of that here. When you make your own animation, I’m sure you will take care of all these minor issues.

  31. Are we assuming that the core of the planet is the same distance away or is it the closest edge that is the same distance away?

    oh for heaven’s sake!! *facepalm*

  38. I think this was great! Thanks for doing this. I will say – it would have been nice to see the other planets, but it is still really nifty as is. Those of you who are sounding disappointed saying it SHOULD have included the other planets, please realize that this was not assigned by you so it does not have to meet your specifications. Just enjoy what we do have!

  40. The music needs to transition as the planets get bigger and bigger…from light space woo to vaguely creepy low-frequency vibrations to a soul-chilling primal scream from the maw of the universe itself.

  42. There is no “right” direction when looking at the sky.

    Face your body south.  Now look up.
    Face your body north.  Now look up – the stars are rotating in the opposite direction.
    Face your body east/west, then reverse.  Now look up – Yikes!  Now they’re going vertical!
