The size of the planets and the moon
Recently, as Venus gets closer and closer to the earth, its apparent diameter has also become larger and larger. Today, Venus on the ecliptic is almost in line with Jupiter and Saturn, accompanied by the crescent moon. After shooting at the same focal length and zooming in, you can see the half-moon-shaped Venus, Jupiter with four Galileo moons, and Saturn with beautiful Saturn rings, and of course the crescent moon! Europa is just next to Jupiter today, very beautiful. Because the magnification ratio is the same, this photo can be used to compare their sizes. Their apparent diameter size ratio is Venus: Jupiter: Saturn: Moon=1:0.88:0.86:46.
