Thus we see the planets if they were as close as the Moon Jupiter

And if the place of the moon a planet occupying it?
Illustrator Ron Miller, former art director of the Planetarium and the Museum of NASA, has given a graphic response to this question. In a stunning series of images, where was the moon has been placing different planets that form the Solar System.
The idea occurred to him thinking about how to display the size of the various planets in the most graphic way. "While giving him turns to how to do it, I had the idea of replacing the Moon for each of the planets. We are all familiar with the appearance of the Moon in the sky, so it would be easy to relate how big that are the planets if we saw them at the same distance to the Moon", she tells the HuffPost.
We remain the night sky with Jupiter, Uranus and Venus just 384.400 miles from Earth:
luna1. Moon. The starting point of the work of Miller is this image of the Moon taken from the road that runs through the Valley of death in California (United States).
2. Mercury. It is the planet of the Solar System closest to the Sun and is also the smallest. With 1,300 kilometers larger single diameter to that of the Moon, from Earth would be almost like a great bright new moon.
3. Venus. It's a planet very similar to Earth in size and mass, somewhat smaller. Placed where is now the Moon conveyed similar feelings to them who have had the astronauts who looked towards the Earth from the satellite.
4. Mars. The planet located red where is the moon would be something redder still. Mars, the fourth planet in our system would appear before our eyes with twice the size as the satellite.

5. Jupiter.It's gigantic, with 318 times the mass of the Earth, so it would occupy much of the celestial vault, giving almost the impression that is upon us. Its gaseous composition would appreciate a range of colors in the palette of the best painter.
6. Saturn.It is the second largest planet in the Solar system and has an equatorial radius 10 times that of the Earth. On some nights its rings appear to touch our planet. This is the image he likes Miller and that most have dreamed of. "I think that would be great see something like Saturn in the sky every night!", he says.
7. Uranus. The second planet from the Sun is next to Neptune, one of the icy planets. It is mainly formed by frozen water, methane and ammonia.
8. Neptune.The distant planet is even colder and blue than Uranus. Is 17 times more massive than Earth. With a composition similar to the from the Uranus, it would fill an intense bluish-white night.
Of course, Miller knows that all this is the fruit of his imagination. If it wasn't, the laws of physics would be in serious trouble to earthlings. "If we really were just 380,000 km from a large planet, could have many effects on our planet," recalls the American Illustrator. For example, as Mars and Venus are much larger than the Moon, the tides would be higher than they are. "And if we were so close to Jupiter, can that we were not able to survive in any corner of the Earth," adds. But it was nice to imagine.
