Artwork Suns as Relative Planetary Scale

Images of our sun taken by NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory in a range of wavelength captures are layered and sized to relative scale of all the planets in our solar system. Surrounding each work is a larger hand-drawn charcoal circle sized relative to the scale of the sun in comparison. For example, if the "earth" sun image in the photograph is 1" diameter, the charcoal circle would be 109" (9') in diameter.
