I did a scale solar system walk in some hills above Zurich a couple of years back. Quite an eye opener. Really puts the scale into perspective. :)

 

For interest....

Always amazes me how close the inner planets are. Jupiter is not to far Away either!

That is a lot of scolling!


 


Makes me think it's even more impressive that we can get such good images of Jupiter and Saturn from earth based telescopes.
