solar system paths

Yesterday, i was invited to visit David McConville's amazing Geodome in his wonderful home here in West Asheville. The inside of the dome was projected, from a single macbook, a map of our known space outside Earth. The progression of moving back from the earth to the edge of the universe was a process - complete with informative monologue from David - was a total mind blower.

 

The progression is in the next 10 photographs, but the scale and gorgeousness of the entire process was amazing.

 

This is our solar system with the paths (relative in size) of the inner planets, outer planets and that blue thing we call pluto.
