You wouldn't see anything - it covers the whole system.

i know that lol, i meant like from the outside of the System, there has to be an outside somewhere lol. i kinda pictured it as being like a giant disk surrounding the System for some reason :P

exactly.. ..and all the light from the sun is consumed by that disc - so, you wouldn't see anything from the outside :) just a black nothing.

To actually see something like this in person would be make my life complete. Building GIANT structures in space, stuff that is bigger than the planet itself; pure win, pure genius. This is epic, my friend. Thank you. Might I suggest you come back to this concept some time in the future? To see this in a different, cool perspective would be badass!

Thanks, again. And have a great day!

wow i had to look at the comment before i finally figured out it was a dyson sphere. that concept is always amazing to me ever since i heard about it on an episode of Trek. didn't even know it was a real concept until i looked at the wiki a while back. nice job man!!! good luck in the contest =D

Thank you. Well, If I end up as one of the first three in the Uknown Moons contest, I won't be probably allowed to participate in this one... ...or at least without any chance to place as one of the first three.. ..ahh , it doesn't matter, I'd make this picture anyway :)

A Dyson's Sphere. That has always been an interesting concept to me. The resources required to construct a sphere would be unimaginable though.

:iconjoeyjazz:
JoeyJazz Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah - they would probably have to harvest several surrounding systems to construct it.

That's incredible! So is this like a minature solar system with a mini sun that produces immeasurable amounts of energy? Or is this like a true solar system with a super civilization that actually built this around a fledgeling galaxy? Either way it's an incredible piece of work!

it's a simple real solar system with its sun in the middle of the structure - read about Dyson's sphere on wiki.

Interesting, I could see that as a possiblility for super advanged civilizations. Your rendition of it is incredible, I think it'd be interesting to see you to do more on it and space habitats, maybe a more dramatic view to capture more scope of it. That is if you have any spare time to do it.
