  • The Sun
    • At the center of our Solar System!
    • Provides the Earth with light, heat & energy
    • Made up entirely of gas called Plasma
    • The sun's radius (distance from its center to its surface) is about 432,000 miles.
    • The visible part of the sun has a temperature of about 5500 degrees C!!

  • Mercury
    • The planet closest to the sun
    • Surface Temperature: 440 Kelvin or 166.85 Celsius
    • Average distance from Sun: 36 million miles
    • Diameter is 3,030 miles
    • The smallest planet in the Solar System
    • Looks very similar to the Moon
    Quit
  • Venus
    • Planet 2 nd closest to the Sun

    • Average distance from the Sun: 141.5 million miles
    • Diameter: 4,217 miles
    • The planet most likely to house liquid water and possibly life! (besides Earth)
    Now with Google Earth you can visit the planet Mars! Once you click here to get to Google Earth, make sure to change the planet from Earth to Mars with the small planet icon placed on the top toolbar. Once there, have fun exploring! Can you find any life on Mars? Quit
  • Jupiter
    • Planet 5 th closest to the Sun
    • Jupiter has no solid surface, it is made up of hydrogen and helium.
    • Average Surface Temperature: 123 Kelvin or -150.15 Celsius
    • Average Distance from the Sun: 484 million miles
    • Diameter: 88,736 miles
    • Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system!
    Quit
  • Saturn
    • Planet 6 th closest to the Sun
    • Saturn has seven major rings that are composed of hydrogen and helium.
    • Average Surface Temperature: 103 Kelvin or -170.15 Celsius
    • Average Distance from the Sun: 889 million miles
    • Diameter: 74,500 miles
    • The only planet in the solar system that is less dense than water!
    Quit
  • Uranus
    • Planet 7 th closest to the Sun
    • Surface Temperature: 73 Kelvin or -200.15 Celsius
    • Average Distance from the Sun: 1.79 billion miles
    • Diameter: 32,00 miles
    • This was the first planet discovered using a telescope!
    • Nickname: “ice (gas) giant”
    “Uranus appears in true colors, left, and false colors, right in images produced by combining numerous pictures taken by the Voyager 2 spacecraft. The false colors emphasize bands of smog around the planet's south pole.” - NASA Quit
  • Neptune
    • Planet 8 th closest to the Sun
    • Has a blue color that is caused by methane composition
    • Average Surface Temperature: 68 Kelvin or -205.15 Celsius
    • Average Distance from Sun: 2.80 billion miles
    • Diameter: 30,760 miles
    • This was the first planet to be discovered by mathematical prediction rather than observation.
    Quit
  • Pluto
    • The “9 th ” planet from the Sun
    • Average Distance from the Sun: 3,647,240,000 miles
    • Astronomers know little about Pluto’s size because it is so far away. It has an estimated diameter of about 1,400 miles.
    • At –225 Celsius or 48.15 Kelvin it is one of the coldest surfaces in the solar system.
    • Many believe that Pluto is made up of mostly ice. (The white portions of the picture)
    • Is no longer considered a planet in our solar system!
    “Pluto is so far from Earth that even powerful telescopes reveal little detail of its surface. The Hubble Space Telescope gathered the light for the pictures of Pluto shown here.” - NASA Click here to read more about why Pluto is no longer a planet. Quit
