Scaling the Solar System

OMG Space is a scaled representation of the Solar System. Starting with the Sun, at the top of the webpage, as you scroll down you travel out towards the edge of the Solar System, passing all the planets as you do so.

The Sun and the planets and the distances between them are all to scale, so without using the links it will probably take you some time to scroll to the very edge of the Solar System.

If the thought of scrolling across the whole Solar System sounds a little daunting you can enter hyperspace by using the planet links running across the bottom of the page. Select a planet link and the website quickly scrolls to the chosen planet.
