Our solar system

My family took a trip last Friday to the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, AZ, where the dwarf planet Pluto was discovered in 1930. Got to view the sun through a special filter and see Saturn through their 24" telescope. Breathtaking!!

Here's a fascinating infographic of our solar system. A great way to capture the size of earth and our neighboring planets. Yes, the heavens are still declaring the glory of God (Ps. 19:1).

Our solar system to scale from the sun to the most recently discovered dwarf planet Eris in astronomical units.
