10 Wild Photos of Our Solar System That Prove How Tiny We Are

It can be hard to wrap your head around just how vast space is…and how tiny the planet that we call home is…

So we thought it would be a good idea to show you some photos that illustrate just how amazingly tiny we are.

Take a look at these pics and take some time to look up at the sky and ponder our existence once in a while, it’s truly incredible!

1. Just to put things in perspective.

END TO END, people.

2. That’s how big Jupiter is.

We are just a little speck out there…

5. This is what Earth looks like from Mars.

Wayyyyyy out there.

Kind of hard to believe, isn’t it?
