The actual relative sizes of the Solar System bodies [Les tailles réelles relatives des corps du système solaire].

In order to see the very dim grey trajectory of Pluto, one must multiply the actual radius of all celestial bodies by a huge factor (=5400). And then, almost all planets (Mercury,the Earth,Mars,Jupiter,Saturn,Uranus) disappear "hidden" by the Sun -the big yellow sphere- with the exception of Neptune -light blue- and obviously Pluto -dim grey-.

In order to display all the Solar System bodies one must change their radius arbitrary:

Each celestial body is colored according to its actual color:
