  6. 6. Earth 3rd planet from the sun 30% covered by land 70% covered by water Earth has one moon 93 million miles from the sun
  7. 7. Mars 4th planet from sun “Red Planet” 2 moons Contains the solar systems largest volcano 142 million miles from the sun
  8. 8. Jupiter 5th planet from the sun Largest planet in the solar system Very stormy planet No solid surface, all gas 50 official moons, 12 unofficial moons 483 million miles from sun
