Celestial bodies in the Solar System: the Sun, planets, satellites, comets, asteroids and meteorids.

  1. 1. Our solar system is made up by celestial bodies. Celestial bodies are natural objects in the sky and they can be: -The Sun -Planets -Satellites -Comets -Asteroids -Meteorids
  2. 2. It is a star because it produces light and heat. The Sun is at the centre of the Solar System.
  3. 3. There are eight planets that orbit, move around or revolve around the Sun.
  4. 4. Mercury is the planet nearest to the Sun. This small and hot planet has no moons. It takes 58 days to rotate on its axis and 88 days to revolve around the Sun. Its temperature goes from 465ºC to -184ºC.
  5. 5. Venus is the the hottest planet because it can reach 449ºC and it has no moons. It needs -243 days to rotate on its axis and 224 days to orbit the Sun. Venus is known as the “morning star” or “evening star”.
  6. 6. We live on the Earth, the third planet from the Sun. It takes 24 hours to rotate and 365 days to orbit the Sun. It has one moon.
  7. 7. Mars is the most Earth-planet in the Solar System. It has two moons and its atmosphere is mainly composed of carbon dioxide. The biggest vocano in the Solar System is there.
  8. 8. This is the surface of Mars. There is ice on both north and south poles. Mars needs more than 24 hours to rotate on its axis and 686 days to revolve around the Sun.
  9. 9. Jupiter is a gas giant and the biggest planet in our Solar System. It is so big that the rest of the planets could fit inside it. It has 63 moons. It needs 10 hours to rotate on its axis and almost 12 years to orbit the Sun.
  10. 10. Saturn is a gas giant which has beautiful rings made of ice and rocks. It has 33 moons. It needs 10 hours to rotate on its axis and more than 29 years to revolve around the Sun.
  11. 11. Uranus is a light blue gas giant with 27 moons. This planet is extremely tilted and a gas called methane gives it the blue colour as it absorbs red light. It needs 18 hours to rotate on its axis and 84 years to revolve around the Sun.
  12. 12. Neptune is a blue gas giant because its atmosphere is also composed of methane. It has 13 moons and it needs 16 hours to rotate on its axis and more than 164 years to orbit the Sun! So, it is the farthest planet to the Sun. The poles are in constant darkness of sunlight for 40 years at a time.

  14. 14. It is the only known planet where living things can survive. This is because: - It has enough oxygen in its atmosphere. -There is water on its surface. -Its warm temperature: it is not too hot or too cold.
  15. 15. The Moon is the Earth’s only natural satellite. It rotates on its axis at the same time that the Earth, so it needs 24 hours to do so. It also takes about 28 days to orbit the Earth. Remember!: Satellites, like planets, do not produce light and heat. The Moon shines because it reflects off the light from the Sun.
