What if Earth would have Saturn's rings?

Here at Click & Grow, we're a bunch of daydreamers. We often wonder "What if...?", and then try to turn those fantasies into reality. And we're super excited when we find people who do the same.

While surfing through planetary.org, we found out about the daydreamer-doer Ron Miller, illustrator and author. He has done an amazing job trying to show us how would the sky look like if Earth would have Saturn's rings. The answer is - pretty damn cool. We don't know if it's the close-to-maximum scientific accuracy of the pictures (as accurate as sci-fi pictures can be) or our fantasy, but this really makes us believe that we'll see the exact same thing when looking out the window right now.
