Ever look up at the night sky and think, "Gee, our moon seems so puny. What would some other planets of the solar system look like orbiting Earth up there?" Well, since there's no way to ever see that for real, someone's put together a video that lets us know exactly how terrifying it would be.

YouTube user 3kingAmazing assembled a hypnotic video that gives us a look at massive planets up close and personal without having to suffer the gravitational disasters that would surely result.

Check it out below—and be glad it's only a video!
