* The many Website/YouTube videos involving zoom out to display comparative planetary and stellar body sizes. They form an unusual case because they often have to use side pans in conjunction with a pan out in order to fit things in e.g.[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LUQVzerseI&feature=related]].

* Veteran [[TheBeautifulGame football]] show ''Match of the Day'' does this to introduce a game, zooming in from "geostationary orbit over Britain" to "Goodyear Blimp cruising over the stadium in question" in a second or so.

* Done in the opening and closing of ''Film/BurnAfterReading'', giving the sense of an omniscient viewer, in this case, the CIA....which is funny when you think about it, as by the end of the movie [[spoiler: they really had no idea what the hell just happened]].

An Establishing Shot that includes a wild planet-scale or even galaxy-scale zoom -- for example, showing Earth from space and then zooming in through the atmosphere to a single room/street, or zooming through galaxies to Earth.

It is extremely common in documentaries about space, often zooming from the scale of entire galaxies being pixels big, until reach the scale of measly people. In a historical context - in films before the mid 2000's, when [[{{GOOGLE}} Google Earth]] became available, seeing this sort of zoom was a real novelty.

* The establishing shot in the first episode of ''Series/TerraNova'' tracks past the Apollo footprints on the Moon to reveal an EarthThatUsedToBeBetter covered in [[PollutedWasteland yellow smog]], then zooms down to a [[SceneryGorn rusty Chicago skyline]] and in through an apartment building window where we meet our breathing-mask-clad hero.

* The entire intro shot of ''WesternAnimation/MrBugGoesToTown'' uses this majestically, zooming out from a God's eye view of Earth, into the skylines of UsefulNotes/NewYork, all the way down to the measly inches high houses of the bugs.

* ''TheMind'sEye'' does this in its first segment, starting with what is implied to the the Big Bang, panning through a set of galaxies until locking onto the Milky Way in the center, then zooming all the way to Earth, rounding past the Moon as the music builds up.

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' in the Season 3 finale was another variation, the shot zooming out from a battle to show the entire Galaxy before zooming back in at a nearby area to show how close the fleet were to Earth, though given the sizes involved they could be right next to it and never have found it without help.
