Our Solar System is a seriously beautiful place. Whether it’s the pockmarked volcanic surface of Mercury,
the dusty crimson plains of Mars, the beautiful rings of Saturn, or even the blues and viridians of our own
world, it’s a diverse place full of remarkable sights and natural wonders.

We’d be nowhere without the Sun, mind you, and a series of truly stunning visualizations of our local star
(as seen from each planet, and poor demoted Pluto) by artist and illustrator Ron Miller serve to remind you
of this fact. He’s spent more than 40 years illustrating the dark realms of space, both near and far, and has
come up with the most realistic depictions of the Sun as seen from these far-flung worlds as possible.

“I've taken care in not only making sure the Sun is depicted realistically, but also the surfaces of the planets
and satellites as well,” Miller told IFLScience.
