If you like space, you'll love my the 12,000 billion light-year map of clusters, superclusters and voids. Find the biggest nothings in Boötes and Eridanus.

The Solar System (20 July 2019)

Planets, satellites, comets, asteroids. Mysterious space bodies or kinetic collision junk?

From 2005 UR at 0.27 A.U. to Eris at 96.0 A.U., explore 772,063 places and objects in our solar system as they are positioned on 20:18 UTC on 20 July 2019. If you want to see the layout on another date, try the Cosmic Calendar.

None of the scaling is linear—a mix of log and power scaling is used. The region of the asteroid belt at around 2.4 AU and the Kupier belt at around 40 A.U. is expanded.

The solar system map shows planets, satellites, comets and asteroids. All objects except for comets are drawn proportionally to their diameter, albeit in a non-linear funky way. Labels are lovingly placed.
