Really, steeljaw354? I thought it was the oceania that was closest, as oceanias are supposed to be smaller than gas giants. Think of a mouse and an elephant. In a properly oriented photo they might appear the same size, but you can sense that the elephant has to be several feet behind the mouse to appear the same size. And GullWings, how long did it take you to orient the two heavenly bodies properly?

I also think that the gas giant is closer to the camera position.
(Otherwise GullWings would probably not have asked.)

I suspect it is made with a small FOV, and both are quite far away from the camera position.





Don't forget to look here.

steeljaw354, SpaceHopper & JackDole,

Hey guys, I thought it was obvious but apparently NOT so. I want to congratulate SpaceHopper for the correct reasoning. I happened open this position whilst orbiting the gas giant. I saw an opportunity to adjust the distance to the Oceania so as to match the apparent size of the parent body. If you look closely at the angle of the terminators on each world and think about the geometry relative to the parent star, it should be apparent that the gas giant is larger, therefore making the Oceania neccesarily closer to the camera.

I enjoyed creating the visual challenge. I'll try to do another worthy of getting different answers. Thanks for your feedback!

Yay for me! biggrin biggrin biggrin

BTW, this planet has days almost as long as ours. A little hard to find now, with the tidally locked terras and terras in orbital resonance.
