There are nine planets in our solar system:
The Sun is the star at the centre of the Solar
System. The Earth and other matter orbit the
Sun, which by itself accounts for about 99.8%
of the Solar System's mass.
Mercury is the innermost and smallest planet in
the solar system, orbiting the Sun once every 88
VENUS IS SISTER PLANET TO EARTH. IT HAS
NO MOONS OR RINGS. IT IS COVERED WITH
CRATERS,VOLCANOES AND MOUNTAINS.
Earth is the third planet from the Sun. Earth is the largest of
the terrestrial planets in the Solar System in diameter, mass
Mars pronounced is the fourth planet from the Sun in the Solar System.
The planet is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. It is also
referred to as the "Red Planet" because of its reddish appearance.
Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest planet within
the Solar System. It is two and a half times as massive as all of the
other planets in our Solar System combined. Jupiter is classified as a
gas giant, along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the
second largest planet in the Solar System, after
Uranus or is the seventh planet from the Sun and
the third-largest and fourth-most massive planet in
the solar system.
Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from the
Sun in the Solar System. It is the fourth largest
planet by diameter, and the third largest by mass.
A star is a massive, luminous ball of plasma. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun, which is the
source of most of the energy on Earth. Other stars are visible in the night sky, when they are
not outshone by the Sun.
A meteorite is a natural object originating in outer space that survives an impact
with the Earth's surface. While in space it is called a meteoroid. When it enters the
atmosphere, impact pressure causes the body to heat up and emit light, thus
forming a fireball, also known as a meteor or shooting star.
