A scale representation of all eight planets (No Pluto yet) and their moon systems.

One Blender Unit = 62,137.1 Miles (100,000 kilometers). Note that the Planet's orbits themselves are not represented, as they would be far too big for blender to handle.

All planets and most of the moons have textures(Some moons have not been scanned fully by probes, and simply have a diffuse shader with their average known color), and are set up for Cycles. You can get really nice renders right away.

All moons with diameters larger than 62.1 Miles are represented, all the spherical ones have actual UV spheres. The non spherical ones (Below about 310 mi.) have empties.

The sun is not to scale, nor is it at the correct distance. It is just there to illuminate the planets.

Several Camera angles have been provided for shots of the Gas Giants, Terrestrials, etc.

This file was saved under r44021, and possibly may not render correctly with the Official 2.61(I didn't test).
