  1. why is venus the largest of the three when its the smallest and farthest away.

  2. I have heard that this photo was “enhanced” with a more red hue. Apparently Mars is not as red as we imagine it to be. Nonetheless, it is a beautiful image.

  3. It’s not a genuine picture, it’s computer-generated. It seems unlikely to me that you could see 3 planets but no stars.
