How would it look to have a planet as our moon?

Space enthusiast, artist and writer Ron Miller wondered what the night sky would look like if the moon was replaced by one of our solar system’s planets. The simulated images take into account the distance of the moon from Earth (approximately 240,000 miles) and re-imagine the natural satellite as its own celestial body.

Regarding the gaseous planet Venus, Miller says: “We’re pretending, of course, that Venus would still have the same atmospheric conditions if it were in essentially the same orbit as the Earth.”
