If jupiter was in the sky (ignoring everything else like gravitational havock) above us, i would freak out at the sight of it. Ikifika 6pm niko kejani hadi kesho asubuhi. Its scary!!

Jupiter from earth would look good, reminds me of the Ewoks and Star wars.

If any planet of jupiter or Saturn stature came near us, we would either be sucked to death like a meteorite by its Gforce, or we would start orbiting around it like a moth. Either way, our atmosphere would go like a fart. Dead, no life on earth

Did you know that if the sun were to be replaced with a black hole of equal mass, all planets would continue revolving as if nothing happened?
