Being a bit of an astronomy nerd, I find it important that everyone has some knowledge of our little corner of the universe.
Too often I’ve heard people incorrectly describe the Earth’s moon as “a planet” *cringe*, and some people not understand that our sun is a star *SMH*.
So in an effort to help tell the story of our solar system I’ve designed this series of informational posters. Those with a keen eye for detail will notice the backdrop of space starts quite bright at Mercury with no stars seen in the background. Then, realistically, the further we travel away from the sun, space gets darker and colder with more stars becoming visible.
Designed specifically for high quality, giclee printing on archival paper. My approach: appreciate and educate.
Each poster in the collection contains 12 facts and a brief description of the planet, the planetary symbol and a scaled-down legend of orbital distance from the sun.
