Planetary Scale Calculator

I struggled to find Eris-inclusive planetary scale calculators on the web, so here is my own. Dwarf planets in general were oddly missing from most calculators I found. This will give you the scaled values of the sun, all eight planets, seven largest moons, and some favorite trans-Neptunian objects.

Instructions

There are two ways to use this calculator. To find basic planet sizes, find something round and measure it in centimeters. Decide what you'd like that object to represent and enter its measurements in the box below. Or if you'd like to make a solar system scale over a certain distance, enter that distance in meters.
Centimeters (diameter) or meters (if your using one of the "distance" choices):

Sun
Jupiter
Earth
Eris
Distance to Neptune
