Views from the Sun

If the Sun were a 3 inch sphere and you could take pictures from that sphere this would be Sister on Jupiter (155.6 ft away).

Solar System Jupiter

This would be Sister on Saturn (285.88 ft away)

Solar System Saturn

and this would be Sister on Uranus (574.20 ft away).

Solar System Uranus

Sister would not be able to stand on Neptune or Pluto because you would have long since run out of street and both of those planets would be in someone else’s yard.
