What if the planets were as close as the moon


Ron Miller, from West Virginia, USA, said: 'We are all familiar with the moon in our skies but many people struggle to appreciate the sheer size of the planets we share our solar system with.  'The planets are just a vague concept to a lot of people and even the moon is just a fuzzy ball in the sky.

'I had a bright idea one morning to create a series of illustrations in which the moon is replaced with other planets, something I don't think has been done before. I wanted the illustrations to be thought-provoking and catch people's imaginations.
