The space agency selected a collection of the most impressive photographs of Earth, solar system, and beyond.

The full set of “Solar System and Beyond” posters includes 21 deep space destinations and the planet Earth (with a variety of views and download options). You can see all the download options on solarsystem.nasa.gov.

On the backside of the images, you can find short explanations about the astronomical object(s). For example, the Solar System Version A poster comes with the description below:

“Our solar system is a planetary system composed of our star, the Sun, and all the objects that orbit around it – eight large planets, many smaller, planet-like worlds, dozens of moons, and millions of asteroids, comets, and meteoroids.”

“The planetary system we call home is located in an outer spiral arm of the vast Milky Way galaxy. Most stars have their own system of planets, meaning there are likely many billions of planetary systems in our galaxy alone (one of perhaps 100 billion galaxies). We’ve discovered thousands of these extrasolar planetary systems so far.”

NASA Solar System and Beyond Poster Set - Solar System Version A
Solar System – Version A. This artist’s rendering shows the eight major planets of our solar system lined up as if they were transiting the Sun. Although such a view would not be possible in reality, the graphic is intended to show the accurate scale of the planets, relative to each other and the Sun.

Or there’s also an optional back with scale and orbit diagrams of the Solar System:
