    Maybe it's not kosher to blatantly steal from what's currently on reddit, but since I believe someare not using reddit anymore, I wanted to share this video I thought was cool. I'm a relative...

    I'm a relative astronomy-noob, so this was a really impressive perspective to me. Some pointed out that it is just a size reference and doesn't take into account the various other changes this would have on earth: gravity, brightness, etc.

    Also in the comments was this video whichis the best explanation I've seen for why Pluto isn't a planet anymore. He even anthropomorphizes Pluto a little so everyone is happy.
