“Here on Earth, the sun appears as a giant ball of light in the sky. But how does the sun look from other planets in the solar system that are billions of kilometers away? ”

We really love this video. Moving toward the sun from the “remote frontier of the solar system,” this video from the BBC’s Wonders of the Solar System with Professor Brian Cox, helps to visualize just how immense our little corner of space is, and how small our sun really is.
