Story Lite notes storyboard from Story Software Rotating Header Image

Make a Story layout with Earth, Moon and Sun – accurate distance and scale

This is accurate for the diameters and also distances:

  • the Moon is about a quarter the diameter of the Earth, and 30 diameters away
  • the Sun is 109 times the Earth’s diameter, and 11,700 diameters away.

See Earth, Moon and Sun – accurate distance and scale >

This is easy to do in Story Lite. Even with a smallish Earth / Moon the Canvas size has to be 125,000 pixels. This is about 122 normal computer monitor widths. It can be done (Story Lite can do anything) and navigate by using the red box on the Info Map. Just download and try out in the software.

I suppose this is a bit like a SF fantasy of space travel – move your frame of reference and there you are.

Next stop – Alpha Centauri – 4.37 light years. That is a lot of pixels.
