    Here's what it would look like if the planets were the same distance away as the moon.

    And if the Moon were as close as the ISS

    Not youtube but a beautiful time lapse. Worth watching in HD full screen. Ideally on a projector!

    Slightly NSFW as it slips in a sweary, however it is highly educational regarding the economy:

    That video drove me to google, turns out the science is even more creepy than it looks:

    Hairworms, or Nematomorpha, are a little-known group of parasites, which contains around 300 known species worldwide. Biron, the study author, says the organisms target a wide range of land-based insects, including praying mantises.

    The French research team studied proteins produced by both the parasite and its host to investigate how hairworms might make grasshoppers hop to their deaths.

    Central Nervous System

    The team found that hairworms release proteins that influence grasshoppers' central nervous systems, thereby affecting chemical signals to the insects' brains.

    "Some of these proteins secreted by the worm [mimic] proteins produced by the grasshopper," Biron added.

    This biochemical tampering appears to drive the grasshopper to water just when the hairworm is ready to reproduce.
