This Video Puts The Size Of Earth's Moon In Perspective

How big is the moon? One way to answer that question is approximately 3,400 km across. But another way is with this animated comparison that looks at how the moon stacks up against some other objects — both earthbound and those among the stars.

To see the size of the moon in comparison to both the other moons in the solar system (it's only the fifth largest) or to see it dwarf Mount Everest, check out the video above, made by Kurzgesagt.
