English: The Solar System, (not to scale - actually very very far from the real scale - creating a scale image of the solar system with detailed representations of all its major bodies would not likely be feasible - see w:solar system model ) showing the Sun, Inner Planets, Asteroid Belt, Outer Planets, and a comet.
Deutsch: Das Sonnensystem, zeigt die Sonne, die inneren Planet, Asteroid Gürtel, äußere Planet und einen comet, allerdings nicht maßstabsgetreu.
Русский: Солнечная система. В центре - Солнце, далее - внутренние планеты, астероидный пояс, внешние планеты и комета. (Рисунок выполнен не в масштабе, т.к. сохранение масштаба в пределах размера данного рисунка не позволит изобразить всю Солнечную систему в деталях.)
