The Solar System - To Scale

A few years ago I did the round trip on my bicycle along the entire planet walk starting at the sun on 5th Avenue in downtown Anchorage, all the way out to Pluto at Kincaid Chalet, and then I pedaled back.  Seems to me I was out for a few hours.  It was a long bike ride. The planet walk is set to a scale that makes walking equal to light speed.  Walking is supposed to take 5.5 hours from the sun to Pluto if you ever feel inclined to make the hike.  On bike, I was traveling at warp speed!  This video is actually a much smaller scale model and may give you more perspective on the size of our solar system.
