Oh wait... I bet you could make the planets appear smaller as they go away from you.

@Entity1037, I could; but, I do not think I will. There is already some impression of depth as (1) the planets do pass behind the sun; and (2) the planets full image is better revealed as they pass in front of the sun; this combination along with the slight tilt in the orbital pattern all help to give the illusion of depth.

I know, but I would like to see how realistic it could get. Actually, I could maybe program that myself if I really tried. Although I might have trouble with the images getting all pixelated from resizing it...
