On a dry lakebed in Nevada, a group of friends build the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits: a true illustration of our place in the universe.

A behind-the-scenes look at the film "To Scale: The Solar System."

 

On August 21st, 2017, the United States hosted its first total solar eclipse in nearly 40 years. While a partial eclipse was visible from most of the US, a thin strip across fourteen states experienced what is widely regarded as the most astounding celestial event one can witness: a total solar eclipse. This film is about why one should do what they can to see the phenomena in person.

"Seeing a partial eclipse bears the same relation to seeing a total eclipse as kissing a man does to marrying him, or as flying in an airplane does to falling out of an airplane." 
-- Annie Dillard
