Anyone else get anxiety looking at pictures of large planets/space? I don't have a fear of heights but this stuff is really spooky to me.
ITT post space.
I picked this out just for you
I once had a similar feeling about what it would be like to crash into neptune, and wrote a short paragraph about my imagination of it.
I stood beside the plate window, gazing out to my inevitable doom. The once beautiful blue is now my ominous fate, its swirly skies the jaws of some empyrean beast, the jungle man was never meant to venture. Horror filled me at the conversion of wonder to warning as the ship’s systems failed. I am going to crash into its void and become nothingness. If the winds don’t rip me apart, I will be crushed by its pressure as I plummet to my doom, my particles finding their place in the core of this cosmic toilet. It dawned on me that the ancient Greeks didn't see this isolated planet as the warm source of interest our western colleagues did. No, they saw it as I see now: a cold, unforgiving tyrant. Neptune, you will be my grave, as I descend into your pale blue umbra.
Ashes, I return to you.
No, but seeing venus, jupiter and mars and picturing them in three dimensional space (also figuring out where the sun is) is pretty intense. They might still be on the horizon later tonight
probably means you have tremendous spatial awareness. Most people probably picture mentally in 2d. Looking at planets probably just on some level remind you how fucking big it is and were spinning around on a grain of sand in vast nothingness. wow I'm high.
Gotta admit that pic is a bit spooks.
Feels like the cosmic version of watching a whale swim past the view port of a sub.
An object that size is about 8% of the moon. So if it were orbiting at the same distance of the moon (which is pretty far out) it would have an angular diameter of about 1800*.08=144 arc seconds. Venus is between 10 and 63 arc seconds so yes it would be visible as long as its in direct sunlight and its more reflective than venus.
I know that feel OP.
Sorry for /v/, but mission 2 of Homeworld 2 spooked the shit out of me, because of the fucking Angel Moon hovering above me all the time, scaring me shitless. I wouldnt want to be caught by its gravity field and crash on its hellish surface.
Space is a scary place.
