  2. 2. Have you everwondered whereEarth fits in theentire universe??
  3. 3. When you look at the sky at night you may see themoon among many stars. In the daytime you know the sunis shining on us. We have learned that Earth where we liverevolves around the sun. Planet earth and its lone moonbelong to the solar system, where the sun is the center. The solar system consists of an average star we call theSun, the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter,Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. It Includes the satellites ofthe planets; numerous comets, asteroids, and meteoroids.
  4. 4. Members of the SOLAR SYSTEM:1. The Sun 3. Other Members2. The Planets of the Solar - Mercury System - Venus - Dwarf Planets - Earth - Asteroids - Mars - Comets - Jupiter - Meteors, - Saturn Meteoroids and - Uranus Meteorites - Neptune
  5. 5. • Y The Sun
  6. 6. The SUN The sun is the center of the solar system. The sun provides the Earth and other planets light and heat . Although the sun is the largest object in the solar system, it is only a medium-sized star. It is a yellow dwarf star made of a huge ball of hot hydrogen and helium gases. It has a diameter of 1392000 km, which is 100 times the diameter of the Earth. It also has a very strong pulling force called gravity. It is the responsible in maintaining the members of the solar system in their respective orbits.

  11. 11. Mercury mercury
  12. 12. MERCURY Mercury is the smallest planet and is the nearest to the sun. Because of its closeness to the sun, Mercury experiences extreme temperature. Mercury has a very thin atmosphere, made up mostly of very thin amount of helium gas. It has no moon and has a very weak magnetic field. No life exists on this planet.home
  13. 13. Venus venus
  14. 14. VENUS Venus is the second planet from the sun. It is often referred to as the twin planet of Earth because they are almost similar in size and mass. It is regarded as a beautiful bright star. Venus is often called the evening star or the morning star. The atmosphere of Venus is made up mostly of dense clouds of carbon dioxide and sulfuric acid.home
  15. 15. Earth
  16. 16. EARTH Earth is the third planet from the sun. It is the only planet in the solar system that maintains life. About 70% of the Earth’s surface is made up of water while landforms make up the 30% of the earth. The presence of oxygen and water in the atmosphere protects the planet from the sun’s harmful radiation. The atmosphere of the earth is composed of gases like nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. When we breathe, we take in oxygen from the air and give-off carbon dioxide while plants take in carbon dioxide to make food for human beings and animals.home
  17. 17. Mars mars
  18. 18. MARS The fourth planet from the sun is the Mars. This planet is smaller than Earth. The atmosphere of Mars is composed of carbon dioxide with small amounts of other gases. It has a very cold temperature because of its distance from the sun. Iron oxides, commonly known as rust, creates the red color of Mars; hence, it is called the Red Planet. Its red color can be seen with the naked eye.home
  19. 19. Jupiter
  20. 20. JUPITER Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun. It is the largest planet in the solar system. It is a giant ball of gases. It has a thick atmosphere made up of hydrogen and helium, and its clouds are made up of ammonia and ice crystals. Jupiter is the brightest object in the sky after the sun, moon, and Venus. With the use of a telescope, you may able to see its cloud bands and the Great Red Spot.
  21. 21. Saturn
  22. 22. SATURN Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun. it is the second largest planet in the solar system. This planet is made up mostly of hydrogen and helium, which are very light gases. Saturn is known as the Ringed Planet because of its beautiful rings. It has 7 major rings which is consists of thousands of ringlets that is made up of dust, rocks, and icy boulders. Life does not also exist in this planet.home
  23. 23. Uranus
  24. 24. URANUS The seventh planet from the sun is the Uranus. Uranus has a thick atmosphere made up mostly of hydrogen and helium. Astronomers believe that methane and hydrocarbons gives the planet its greenish blue color.home
  25. 25. Neptune neptune
  26. 26. NEPTUNE Neptune is the eight planet from the sun. Due to its great distance from the sun, it takes this planet 165 years to orbit the sun. Neptune has a thick atmosphere of hydrogen, helium, and methane. Methane gives the bluish color of this planet. The Great Dark Spot is the storm system in Neptune’s atmosphere.home
  27. 27. DPLANETSDwarf Planets
  28. 28. DWARF PLANETS A dwarf planet is a celestial body that orbits around the sun, is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity, has not cleared the neighborhood around its orbit, and is not a satellite. Aside from Pluto, the following are considered dwarf planets: Ceres, Eris, Makemake, and Haumea.home
  29. 29. Asteroids ASTEROIDS
  30. 30. ASTEROIDS Asteroids are sometimes called miniature planets or planetoids. They are large pieces of rocks, some of which are mixed with metals. They have different shapes. Some are spherical while many have irregular shapes.home
  31. 31. Comets comets
  32. 32. COMETS A comet is a chunk of frozen gas and dirt which orbits the sun. It is seen with a starlike head and a tail of light. Most comets have three parts, namely, the nucleus, the coma, and the tail. Comets may be classified according to the length of time they orbit the sun. Comets may be short- period or a long-period.home

  34. 34. METEORS, METEOROIDS,and METEORITES Meteors are grains of rock or dust traveling through space at high speed and seen as streaks of light when burning high in Earth’s atmosphere. Meteoroids are small pieces of metallic or stony matter. They have different speed and orbits around the sun. Meteorites are meteors that hit the Earth’s surface.end

  37. 37. Benefits We Get From SOLAR ENERGY The energy coming from the sun is called solar energy. Solar energy supports all life on Earth. Plants use solar energy in making food during photosynthesis. People and animals get solar energy indirectly by eating plants. People burn coal and oil to make machines run.home
  38. 38. Harmful Effects of the SUN Sunburn. Overexposure to the sun can happen in just a few hours. A bad reaction includes tenderness, pain, swelling, and blistering, and may include fever, chills, and nausea. While there is no cure for sunburn, wet compresses, cool tub baths, and soothing lotions may help. If you have a bad burn, see your dermatologist. Premature wrinkling. People who work or lay in the sun without sufficient protection get sagging cheeks and deep wrinkles that may make them look much older. The sun can also cause unsightly red, yellow, gray, or brown spots and scaly growths that may develop into skin cancer.
  39. 39.  Skin cancer. Skin cancer is caused by too much sun, both long-term exposure and bad sunburns. More than 90 percent of all skin cancers occur on parts of the body exposed to the sun. The face, neck, ears, forearms, and hands are the most common places for skin cancer to develop. Eye damage. The sun can cause cataracts and other eye damage. Cataracts are one of the leading causes of blindness.home
  40. 40. A long-period comet takes 200 years or more to orbit the sun. One example is the comet Bennet. A short-period comet orbits thesun once in 25 years or up to 200 years. One example is the Halley’s comet. home
