Summary[edit]

Description
English: Comparison of sizes of objects with order of magnitude 1e15m: one light year radius circle with yellow Vernal Point arrow; Cat's Eye Nebula (NGC_6543) on left with Bok Globule Barnard 68 adjacent; Great January comet (Comet C/1910 A1)'s orbit shown as long extreme ellipse passing behind Barnard 68; light month shell (small yellow sphere) inside which a light week shell. All sizes to scale, but nebulae are artificially positioned for illustrative purposes only. No transparency version.

Source created by running Paul Stansifer's GPL-2 POV-Ray source files modified by me, 84user, and using w:en:POV-Ray, and w:en:IrfanView.

84user's contribution (inside POV-Ray files: adjusting coordinates, changing light source and other parameters) is public domain and source files used are described at User:84user/Size comparison.

Cat's Eye Nebula and Stingray Nebula, see "Licensing" below.

Physical information is based on the Wikipedia articles and elsewhere (see POVRay source files) about the respective lengths.
