Well, the guys at Blue Kazoo have created a puzzle series that has all those elemets — 3 incredible circular jigsaw puzzles of the earth, moon, and sun that are not only stunning to look at but also incredibly challenging to put together. They feature the most vibrant and high-resolution images of these celestial bodies ever taken.

First up we have the Earth...
This 1,000 piece Planet Earth puzzle "depicts night setting over the Atlantic from an altitude of 438 miles"... to be specific!
So just imagine the joy of constructing it piece by piece!
This awe-inspiringly detailed image comes from the Terra satellite which shows the lights in the cities of Europe and Africa glimmer as the sun shines on the Americas.
A team of scientists and graphic artists painstakingly spliced and layered the satellite’s imagery together to create this giant single image...
This ensures that every square inch of this puzzle - including the land, the water, the clouds, and the snow - is a clear and precise depiction of our amazing planet.
Up next, we have the Sun...
This round 1,000 piece burning Sun puzzle captures our nearest star in a way you simply cannot see without the help of space-age technologies.
This puzzle allows us to see the sun in an unimaginable amount of intensity...
The flares of light across this image are the sun preparing to erupt with a "coronal mass ejection," during which a tremendous amount of plasma explodes from the sun's surface - something that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
This would take a lot of patience to construct...

But the finishing result is totally worth it.
And finally, we have the Moon...
This gorgeous 1,000 piece circle puzzle of the moon shows the moon looking just as bright and beautiful as it does when it makes a full appearance once a month.
The dark areas we see across the surface are vast stretches of lava rock that create a stark contrast against one of the moon's most well-known characteristics — craters.
In this puzzle, they're shown with such clarity and detail that it makes the whole moon feel like it's so close it's just a ball you could pick up and throw with one hand.
The images are crisp and vibrant, and the shapes are cut with maximum precision to ensure each piece fits tightly together, no matter how many times you choose to take this puzzle apart and put it back together again.
Hours of fun are guaranteed from these gorgeous puzzles, so make sure to get yours before they sell out by clicking here.
