Speculated story[edit | edit source]

It is thought that this person probably got into astronomy like a lot of us did. The name "thepersonfromearth" indicates was already into astronomy by the time they created their channel. It was around 2008-2009 that star size comparisons became big on YouTube, so they made their own. They decided to make a second version inspired by some of the newer ones that went beyond, and made Size of the Universe II, and Size of the Universe III.

The channel was likely inspired by Mr NixxxoN, judging by the fact that Size of the Universe III (mentioned below), has similarities to Mr NixxxoN's 2009 size comparison.

Videos[edit | edit source]

14 videos are known to have existed, only one has been found so far. 8 of them are known, the other 6 are not.

Partial description[a]

This video clearly describes the size of celestial objects in the Universe. The measurements are NOT exactly correct, but we do have good reason to believe that the objects are around about the right sizes, aspecialy the closer objects. The narration is not so much text,

Other The video had text, talking to the viewer through out. Most likely it started in the Earth and the Moon and then moved on to different planets in the Solar System. They might have visited the Sun. Then they went to other stars, not known which ones. Then they likely went to either the Eagle or Orion Nebula. They went pretty far out in the galaxy and then it finished with them returning back to Earth. Might be the same video as The Universe Home Video (see below).

NOTE: - As you zoom out on this video, you see squares with the radius of the square at the top right corner of the square. But remember, radious is the length from the center of the square to the edge, so if it says 10,000 km on the top right corner of the square, thats the radius, so the length across is acutally 20,000 km (Double Radius) That was an explaination for peaole who didn't know that!
