Have you ever wondered what the moon would look like if it were replaced by the planets in our Solar System? Youtuber Yeti Dynamics has. So he got to his computer and went about mocking it up (after a great deal of research…). And the results are really quite stunning. Just wait until you see Saturn…
We see: Mars, Venus, Neptune, Uranus, Jupiter, and Saturn. He intentionally left out the planet Mercury since Mercury isn’t a lot bigger than the Moon itself and as such wouldn’t look any real different than normal.
