Fear of Planets

For some reason things like this are fine.

For whatever reason, I cannot look at simulations or very high-resolution (2000 pixels or greater usually) of planets or celestial bodies. Whether it's the feeling of emptiness, the scale of them or just the fear of falling into (onto) one I'm not sure but I end up panicking and closing whatever image I'm using. I don't have this problem if I use a telescope, or see them normally. It also doesn't seem to happen if I'm not alone. As far as I know it's probably a combination of megalophobia and astrophobia, but it's strange since I really like space and have no other fear of large objects, only planets.

I have literally no idea why.
