|Imagine shrinking the
Earth down to the same size as a typical 12" (30 cm)
diameter desk-top world globe (1:41849600). Now imagine
using the same scale to shrink the entire Solar System,
and overlay the size of the Sun, and the average orbits
of the planets, as concentric rings centered on downtown
Manitoba, Canada -- using OpenLayers.
NEW! Added an offset orbit for the Moon near the Earth, to allow comparison to other inter-planet distances in our Solar System.
