The Observable Universe (Accurately Scaled & Zoomed Out From Earth)

This video illustrates the scaled size of our universe from quarks to the entirety of the observable universe. Each circle used in the video represents a scale factor of 10; meaning each larger circle is zoomed out 10x more than its predecessor. ( i.e. after 1 circle you are now looking at 10x larger horizon, after 2 circles 100x, 3 would be 1000x, and so forth. This also applies to the speed, ignoring relativistic effects, at which the observer (you) would be traveling.).

If viewing this doesn't leave you in absolute awe then you may not have understood what you have just watched... Enjoy.
