What Landscape Photos Would Look Like if Planets Replaced the Moon
NASA’s predicted what will happen to the night sky in 3.5 billion years when the Milky Way collides with Andromeda; and what landscape pictures would look like if Earth had Saturn-like rings. We are sharing a similar project by artist Ron Miller. He took a regular old landscape photograph and replaced the moon with each of the planets in turn.
Interesting side note: Miller actually took the original photo in Death Valley during the day, and altered it in post to make it look like it was taken at night. He also created each of the planetary illustrations (including the moon) himself, rather than using actual planetary photos.
Of course, if this were to magically happen IRL, we would have more pressing things to worry about than how our pictures would look. For instance, Jupiter would subject us to mass amount of deadly radiation, and that’s not even taking into account issues with the tides and gravitation. Still, it’s a fun thought experiment that we’re glad will never go any further than that.
