If the Sun was the size of a dime (~0.7 inch / 1.6 cm), then:

The Earth would be a tiny dot (1/6 mm) located ~6.3 feet (1.9 m) from the Sun.

Jupiter would be 32.7 feet (10 m) away.

Pluto would be 248 feet (76 m) away.

On that scale the nearest star (Proxima Cen) would be 315 miles (504 km) away!
