Solar System Hierarchy By Size

I found this long image of objects in the solar system arranged by size, which I think is spiffy. Isn’t our solar system colorful?  And you can see what the current politically correct names are for each of the bodies. For instance, it has been decreed that we shall call Pluto a “dwarf planet”. I expect it will change again some day.
