What If Earth Had Rings Like Saturn (Spoiler: It Would Be Freakin' Sweet, That's What)

December 16, 2009

This is a little video showing what earth would look like if it had rings like Saturn. The first minute explains the orientation of the rings, and the next two show what the rings would look like from different cities around the world. It's pretty awesome. So awesome, in fact, I just wrote a petition to God asking for our own rings. I'll let you know what he says.

UPDATE: He said no, but I'm still the handsomest man he ever made. You can't argue with the Creator!

Thanks to twellve, who agrees if Saturn gets rings it's only fair we should have some too.
