Would someone direct me to a specialist, website or any other way of
find out how the planets were aligned on my date of birth. I was born August 03, 1978 at 10:07am. I want a tattoo of all the 9 planets (including the sun and the earth moon) as they were aligned on my date of birth. Can someone help me please?

Here's one site, but you probably want to check at least one or two others to make sure they all agree (and this one doesn't have the moon, unfortunately):

(also, note the different display options, like real vs. logarithmic vs. equally spaced orbit sizes, and the option to zoom in on the inner system...)

if it were to scale that would be a VERY big tattoo.

at least it wouldn't take much ink (unless you show orbital paths)

What about 2003UB213?? Your tatoo will be out-of-date the moment the ink dries without it!

Based on Tony's data.

You want alignment, not scale, right? So it'd look something like this:

Wow. Did you know that, on your birthdate, every single planet in the Solar System was on the opposite side of the Sun from Earth?

Maybe it'd be better to leave out Pluto, it's just sort of a historical accident that it was called a planet, a bit like if Ceres had been discovered before it was realized that it was just a member of a large family of asteroids in the asteroid belt. There are probably other Kuiper belt/Oort cloud objects even further out than Pluto and 2003UB213 that are in the same size range but just haven't been discovered yet.

Well, I guess the best guideline for what should - and should not - be included should be what the SS looked like on that date. Thus 2003UB213 is not included, but Pluto is. Any other way would date the tattoo.
