  • MERCURY OVERVIEW Mercury Mercury is the planet closest to the Web Links Sun in our Solar System. This small, rocky planet has almost no Web Link-1 atmosphere. Mercury has a very elliptical orbit and a huge range in •Web Link-2 temperature. •Web Link-3 During the long daytime (which lasts 58.65 Earth days or almost an •Web Link-4 entire A year on the Mercury planet is 88 days long), the temperature is hotter than an oven; during the long night (the same length), the temperature is colder than a freezer. VFT MENU
  • VENUS OVERVIEW Venus is the second planet from the sun in our solar system. It Venus is the hottest planet in our Solar Web Links System. This planet is covered Web Link-1 with fast-moving sulfuric acid clouds which trap heat from the Sun. Its thick atmosphere is •Web Link-2 mostly carbon dioxide. •Web Link-3 The surface of Venus is a very unpleasant place featuring very high temperatures, winds that •Web Link-4 blow hundreds of miles per hour and an atmosphere of sulfuric acid. VFT MENU
  • EARTH OVERVIEW The Earth is the third planet from the Sun in our Solar System. It is the Earth planet we evolved on and Web Links the only planet in our Solar System that is Web Link-1 known to support life. •Web Link-2 From a distance, our planet looks like a •Web Link-3 beautiful big blue marble. There are a number of •Web Link-4 things that make our planet unique in the solar system, not the least of which is that we are the only planet so far that we VFT know for certain has ever MENU had life of any kind.
  • MARS OVERVIEW Mars, the red planet, is the fourth planet from the sun and the most Earth-like planet in Mars our solar system. It is about half Web Links the size of Earth and has a dry, rocky surface and a very thin Web Link-1 atmosphere. Web Link-2 The Red Planet is named after the Roman god of war. Its Web Link-3 distinctive rust color is easily seen through a small telescope. Web Link-4 The surface of Mars features many mountains, canyons and even polar ice caps that look a lot like those here on Earth. VFT MENU
  • JUPITER OVERVIEW The fifth planet in our solar system is also the largest planet in our system, both in size and mass. Jupiter is the fifth and Jupiter Web Links largest planet in our solar system. Web Link-1 This gas giant has a thick •Web Link-2 atmosphere, 39 known moons, and a dark, barely-visible ring. •Web Link-3 Its most prominent features are bands across its latitudes and a •Web Link-4 great red spot (which is a storm). VFT MENU
  • SATURN OVERVIEW Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun in our solar system. It is the second- Saturn Web Links largest planet in our solar system (Jupiter is the largest). Web Link-1 Saturn is one of the most beautiful planets in the solar •Web Link-2 system. •Web Link-3 Its fascinating system of rings has been a source of wonder •Web Link-4 since we first saw them with the earliest telescopes. In addition, Saturn has so many moons that it is like a miniature solar system. VFT MENU
  • URANUS OVERVIEW Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun in our solar system. This huge, icy planet is covered with Uranus Web Links clouds and is encircled by a belt of 11 rings and 22 Web Link-1 known moons. Uranus is one of the giant gas planets •Web Link-2 in the solar system. •Web Link-3 Its mysterious blue-green color provides very few •Web Link-4 clues as to what is going on underneath the surface clouds. If you get a chance to look at Uranus through a telescope, all you will see is a faint blue disk that appears exceptionally dull VFT and lifeless. MENU
  • NEPTUNE OVERVIEW Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun in our solar system. This giant, frigid planet has a hazy atmosphere and Neptune Web Links strong winds. This gas giant is Web Link-1 orbited by eight moons and narrow, faint rings arranged in •Web Link-2 clumps. •Web Link-3 Actually, there are times when Neptune is the furthest planet •Web Link-4 from the Sun. Pluto, which has a very elliptical orbit, is sometimes closer to the Sun that Neptune for a period of time, but, for the most part, Neptune is closer to the Sun than Pluto. VFT MENU
  • ASTEROID OVERVIEW Asteroids are chunks of rock and metal that orbit around the Sun. Scientists think that Asteroid Web Links they are loose material that never formed into planets. Asteroids are rocky or Web Link-1 metallic objects, most of which orbit the Sun in the •Web Link-2 asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. None of the •Web Link-3 asteroids have atmospheres. Asteroids are also known as •Web Link-4 planetoids or minor planets. VFT MENU
