Proficiency #4 for astronomey in science

  1. 1. By: Allie Snyder
  2. 2. <ul><li>It was formed by a very large rotating cloud of dust and gas called the Solar Nebula. </li></ul><ul><li>Sooner than later the Nebula fell apart, as it did there was a large section that broke off as it formed the Solar System </li></ul><ul><li>There was just one thing that formed right in the center of the section that broke off, the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>As this was happing, particles got flattened to form things called planetesimals. Some planetesimals formed the planets in our solar system and some formed metros, moons, etc. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Gravity is a very big thing when the question pops up, How was the sun formed? </li></ul><ul><li>Many particles formed the sun including dead stars, dust, very cold clouds, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Over time this little sun that was formed it got hotter and even more dense. </li></ul><ul><li>Now the thing that brightens the day in the morning and goes down at night would be called the sun! </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The inner planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and lastly Mars. </li></ul><ul><li>They are the four closest planets to the sun </li></ul><ul><li>The inner planets are closer together, and smaller than the outer planets </li></ul><ul><li>They are very rocky planets </li></ul><ul><li>If you didn’t realize that the four inner planets do not have any rings around them, and none/not many moons…..so you can tell the difference between the inner and outer planets </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The four outer planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune…(Pluto) </li></ul><ul><li>Other than outer planets these are known as the “gas giants” </li></ul><ul><li>The outer planets are very large and farther apart compared to the inner planets </li></ul><ul><li>As you could tell Saturn has the biggest brightest rings in the solar system </li></ul><ul><li>Pluto could be considered an outer planet and it could also be considered as just a large meteor in the sky because its orbit is not correct like a normal planet </li></ul>
  6. 6. J <ul><li>Some similarities are: </li></ul><ul><li>They all are in the solar system </li></ul><ul><li>They all have a tilt so they are not strait up and down. </li></ul><ul><li>All have a rounded shape </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The outer planets are much larger and have many moons/rings </li></ul><ul><li>The Inner planets are rocky when the outer planets are the gas giants </li></ul><ul><li>The inner planets have bigger densities than the outer planets </li></ul><ul><li>The outer planets spin much faster than the inner planets </li></ul><ul><li>The inner planets have solid surfaces and the outer are just gas balls with no surface </li></ul>
