Normally you will never find images of the solar system that are to scale. And there is a good reason for this: you'll understand it when you view the image in its full size! This image shows the solar system to scale up to the planet Earth. The sizes of the planets themselves are not exactly to scale (they would be smaller compared to the Sun), but the Sun and the distance of the planets from the Sun are to scale.
