I would love to redo this in 360 3d VR. I need hardware and software:

What did I just watch?
All the planets in the solar system will fit between the earth and the moon at the moons farthest distance. Most of the time. The Moons apogee (farthest distance in orbit) varies greatly with each orbit due mostly to the influence of the sun, In my example I used a distance of 406377 km
In this video All the planets are fitted between the earth and the moon with small, Less then 1000km distance, between each one, Each planet has a different orbital velocity based on distance, and based on a negligible mass. The orbital velocities are correct for objects of negligible mass.., In reality everything would crash into each other.
Why do the planets seem to be going in different directions?
They aren’t. The Orbits of the planets are all going in the same direction, same as the moon would, however the earth is Rotating, and the closer planets are moving faster than the earth rotates therefore they rise in the west instead of the east.
This video takes place over a period of about 4 days. At night the planets are so bright and fill the sky so well that they illuminate the ground very well. This illumination effect is done with a decent amount of accuracy. However the brightness of the stars is a bit exaggerated. But it looks prettier
The stars are accurate, or possibly upside down.. I think they are correct...
the order of the planets from nearest to farthest and also Smallest to Largest:
Saturns Rotation is extra impossible, but I had to prevent the rings from colliding
The rest of the planets actually have correct sizes, Tilts and rotational speeds, including the earth.
Jupiter and Saturn are correctly Oblique
