The Observable Universe (accurately scaled zoom out from Earth)

Said to be accuretly scaled, this three and a half minute video starts on the surface of the earth and then slowly zooms out into space. It keeps on going from there, giving quite a good perspective to the scale and grandness of what surrounds our little planet here on Earth.

Each circle that you see appear is a representation of the scale factor, that being 10. So when you see a second circle, the scale moves to 100, a third circle, the scale is 1000 and so on. (scale x 10)
