What the Sun looks like from Mars

The Sun seems so tiny from Mars. Whoa.

Buzzy facts: 

1. From Pluto the Sun would be a dot. The Sun, from Pluto, looks hundreds of times brighter than the full moon. Much fainter than it looks from the Earth, yes, but brighter by far than anything else in the sky.

2. On a scale model of the solar system with Jupiter the size of a 12 pt font period, Pluto would still be over 37 feet (11.2 meters) away from Earth (and the size of a bacterium).
