Big difference.   I have tried to look at the size of Mars but wow I like biological sciences, I tend to tune out a bit when astronomical things come up in my reading. It is possible to figure out Blue's size from short and long sun ...

I suppose you have considered that the multiple-legs pattern of Blue 
life as observed by Horn corresponds to E.R. Burroughs' Mars?

What happened to Lune, then? I recall a previous discussion where it was 
mentioned that the Whorl may have moved from one iteration to another, 
Moonless, one. Not only does that lack a mechanism, but I doubt life 
would evolve the same way on an earth without a Moon.
