Photographer Ron Miller creates incredible pictures of what it would look like if planets were closer: The universe as you’ve never seen it before: Photographer creates incredible pictures of what it would look like if planets were closer. Ron Miller, a former art director for NASA, used digital trickery to superimpose scale drawings of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune over the same landscape, highlighting the sheer size of the planets. The incredible drawings imagine each planet to be 233,812 miles from Earth - the same distance at which the moon orbits. Enormous planet Jupiter, around 11 times the size of Earth, would dominate the skies while Mars would appear to be around twice the size of the moon.
Artist: Ron Miller used this view of the moon over Death Valley, California, as the basis for his images.
