REACT…would you mind having a PLANET instead of the MOON tonight?

Is something RON MILLER, photographer, space artist, illustrator and former art director for the National Air & Space Museum’s Albert Einstein Planetarium,  asked when he decided to start his collection of images where he played with the idea…

What if we had a planet instead of a Moon?

I wouldn’t mind if I could choose the planet for tonight…and my choice would be:

NEPTUNE, “…more than fourteen times larger than the Moon — and now we’re talking about something that would look really impressive. It would loom like an enormous blue balloon in the night sky. And dominate the daytime sky, as well.” excerpt from ARTICLE

  1. Stu, good question! would there be space in our view range to see them both at the same time, maybe it would be like a partial eclipse…ooohhh….or like Tatoine (Star Wars) with two suns… we’ll never know, right?!🙂

  2. Ooohh, nice find Alexandra. Love imagining things like this. I wonder what the sun would look like if Neptune were that close!!
