This Is Your Planet

Stolen shamelessly from Locus Online's Blinks:

This site has a series of photographs showing the relative size of various planets and stars, starting with the one I've grabbed and stuck to my immediate left. It's very neat, and is more useful for my brain that all of the "this planet is 3/4th the size of that one, and if this other one were hollow, you could fill it with a billion billion gallons of chocolate syrup" astronomy-book talk.
I hope it will be similarly useful for you.
