Venus’ color The bluish hue of Venus is an effect of the colorization technique used to enhance subtle contrasts in cloud patterns and indicatnear the top of the planet's atmosphere are most prominent in violet and ultraviolet light. This image shows the east to west cloud banding and the briges that this image was taken through a violet filter. Features in the sulfuric acid clouds hter polar hoods . The features are embedded in winds that flow from east to west at about 370 kph (230 mph). We found our info from http://pds.jpl.nasa.gov/planets/captions/venus/bluvenus.htm
Venus Is the closest planet to the Earth. It is about the same size as the Earth. Is the second planet in order from the Sun. It is about 108 million kilometers from the Sun. Makes one complete orbit around the Sun every 224.7 days. Rotates on its axis more slowly than any other planet. It completes one rotation in about 243 days and 24 minutes.

Venus Venus the God Venus the planet Venus means:In astronomy mythology, Venus was the Roman goddess of love and beauty. In Greek her name was Aphrodite. We found our info from http://www.kidsastronomy.com/venus.ht The bluish hue of Venus is an effect of the colorization technique used to enhance subtle contrasts in cloud patterns and indicates that this image was taken through a violet filter. Features in the sulfuric acid clouds near the top of the planet's atmosphere are most prominent in violet and ultraviolet light. This image shows the east to west cloud banding and the brighter polar hoods . The features are embedded in winds that flow from east to west at about 370 kph (230 mph).
Earth The mosaic spans about 1600 km (1992 mi ) across the south pole latitudes of our planet. Earth is the third planet from our sun. Makes one complete orbit around the sun every 365.27 days. The Grand Canyon is 30 km across at its widest and 1.6 km deep at rock bottom.
Earth Earth is were people live on . There is water, and food, air, shelter. It has 1 moon
MARS Is the fourth planet in order from the Sun. It is about 228 million kilometers from the Sun. Rotates on its axis about the same speed as the Earth. It completes one rotation in about 24 hours and 37 minutes. Has seasons similar to our planet, but they last much longer. Is sometimes called the Red Planet. Its mass (weight) is 1/10th that of the Earth. Its diameter is 1/2 that of our planet.

Jupiter’s facts Jupiter has a huge Red Spot which is really a storm that is been going on for 300 years. Jupiter is the largest planet of them all. People CAN’T live on Jupiter because it has too much gas. Jupiter is reddish to the naked eye.
Saturn FACTS Saturn's total mass [kg] 5.69. Saturn has a total of 21 satellites. Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system. Saturn's rings are made up of ice. Seen by the approach of voyager 1 spacecraft, Saturn is almost a uniform being cooler.

Facts for Pluto Pluto mass (kg)129x1022 Diameter (kg) 2300 Mean density (kg/m3) 2030 Average distance from the sun 39.48 AU(5,906,376,200) km Rotation (length of day in Earth days) 6.39 (retro grade)
Surface materials perhaps methane ice. Atmospheric components perhaps methane and nitrogen. Visual geometricalbedo (reflectivity) about 0.5 Humans cannot live on Pluto , nobody has ever been on Pluto. Pluto has 3 moon’s, Pluto is to faint to see by eye. When its viewed by a telescope, it looks like a star. More Facts about Pluto
Meagan & Matt A comet is a small world which scientists sometimes call out a planet. Humans cant live on comets because comets don’t stay still their always moving. Comets don’t have any moons.
Meagan and Matt facts Comets are made out of dust and ice just like a snowball. This is when a comet begins to shine. Up until now the comet has been among millions of others exactly the same, but as they approach the warmer Inner Solar System they begin to melt leaving behind magnificent tails.
comets Comets are made ice and dust. Unfortunately Comets don't live very long once they enter the warmer part of the Solar System. Just like a snowman melts in the summer, comets melt in the Inner Solar System. Although it is the most glorious part of their lives, traveling through the Inner Solar System eventually kills them. After several thousand years they melt down to a little bit of ice, and dust, not nearly enough to leave a tail. Some even melt away completely.
Facts About Asteroids An asteroids is a rocky space object which can be from a few hundred feet to several hundred km away. The largest near earth asteroid found was nearly 41 kilometers long! That’s really big. People can not live on asteroids. They are not even planets. Asteroids do not have any moons. Most asteroids are in the inner solar system
MORE FACTS Close up view of Phobos' surface. Phobos is ellipsoid in shape, 27 by 21 by 19 kilometers (17 by 13 by 12 miles). The origin of the conspicuous, parallel grooves is not yet understood. This image shows the relative size differences between asteroid 951 Gaspra (top) and Mars' satellites Deimos (lower left) and Phobos (lower right). The Gaspra image was taken in 1991 by the Galileo spacecraft, and the Phobos and Deimos images were taken by the Viking Orbiter spacecraft in 1977.
Galaxies Spirals The Spiral Galaxies’ long twisting arms are where stars are formed. Elliptical The Elliptical Galaxies are very old because they don’t actively create new stars. Irregular Irregular Galaxies are simply all the galaxies which are not spiral or elliptical. They can look like anything and have many different individuality.
Black Holes The gravity of the Black Hole pulls items in space toward it. The middle of a black hole is called the singularity. When you fall into a black hole, there is no way to get out of it.
Nebulas Nebulas They glow red or pink as they eject extra energy which they get from near-by stars. Scientists believe that new stars form inside of nebulas. A blue nebulae is called a reflection nebulae.
Stars Red Dwarfs Because of their small size these stars burn their fuel very slowly which allows them to live a very long time. Red Dwarfs are red because those stars only burn a little bit of fuel at a time, they are not very hot compared to other stars. Red dwarf stars are by far the most common type of star in outer space but, very few stars that you see in the sky are red dwarfs.
Quasars At the very edge of the visible Universe can see extremely, bright, and powerful objects that are called quasars. When we look at quasars which are 10-15 billion light years away, we are looking 10-15 billion years into the past. Quasars are probably super, giant black holes, which are devouring entire stars.
