Transcript

  • 1. Learn About The Moons of Our Solar System
  • 2. EARTH’S MOON
  • 3. Luna is a beautiful world that lies some 384,400 kilometers from Earth. It is littered with mountains, valleys, old volcano sites, and many bowl like holes called Craters. Luna is a neat world to explore because you can see it without any telescope, or binoculars. I know you have seen it, in fact you may even see it tonight that is because Luna is our moon
  • 4. JUPITER’S MOON
  • 5. Jupiter has at leased 63 moons.  Most of these moons are very small, and were probably once asteroids that got too close to Jupiter.  Jupiter's large size means that it has very strong gravity.  This powerful gravity sometimes grabs onto objects that wander too close. 
  • 6. The Moons of MarsMars has at least three known moons. Two of these moons are listed below.
  • 7. The Moons of Saturn
  • 8. Of all the planets, Saturn reigns supreme, well at least in the moon department.  That is because Saturn has more moons than any other planet, 34 in all
  • 9. The Moons of Uranus
  • 10. The planet Uranus has many fascinating worlds that orbit it. There are likely still other moons of Uranus that have yet to be discovered.
  • 11. Neptune’sMoons
  • 12. Due to its great distance from the Earth it is extremely difficult for us to see any of Neptune's moons.  For that reason most of its moons were not discovered until 1989 when NASA sent a satellite to explore the world.  Today we know of 13 moons.  However there are almost certainly many more orbiting Neptune which we have not yet discovered.
  • 13. The Moon That Orbit's PlutoPluto is not a planet. However, it does have two moons that orbits it. In truth.
