This Star Size Comparison Video Will Make You Feel Really Small


We think we’ve found a new take on those “Wanna feel old?” posts. How about “Wanna feel tiny in a vast, unending universe?”

This video by morn1415, a sequel to his previous video on the subject, gives you a sense of the scale of the universe by comparing the size of stars and planets. It starts us off at the Earth’s moon, then continues out to the barely-known and beyond.

Look, I’d normally make some jokes at this point. Maybe throw in a jab at Pluto, possibly slip in a “Uranus” joke. But, I’m not going to lie, I found this video deeply, deeply moving. Maybe you will too. Check it out below.
