The Royal Observatory Greenwich has released this lovely animation that explains the many ways astronomers measure the universe -- or how far planets are.

This is the film from our micro exhibition 'Measuring the Universe: from the transit of Venus to the edge of the cosmos'. If you can make it to Greenwich then come and see the exhibition -- its on from 1 March -- 2 September 2012 and its absolutely FREE!
