Dropping Science: What Would Earth Look Like With Rings?

 

We’re very much used to looking at Saturn’s rings from the outside but we rarely think about what it would be like to look up at them from below. In this animation, Roy Prol, shows us what it would look like if our own Earth had a set of rings. By working out the angles, Roy was able to show us how the rings would appear differently depending on where on Earth you were standing. The results are predictably beautiful.
