Scientific Discoveries Of The Planets
Mercury's orbit is so close to the sun that it is hard to see from the ground.The early extronamers couldn't see mercury because it was to close to the sun. 1 Mercury Day is 59 earth days, a Day on mercury and its year are the same length ! The Messenger Space Craft and the Mariner 10 have been the only Space missions to mercury
Venus Is the brightest planet in the night sky, so it is clearly visible to the naked eye, although it is tricky to spot because it is close to the sun. Venus Rises and Sets near the sun. Ancient Civilizations believed Venus was two objects, one a morning star and the other an evening star, we all know now that it is one object. Know one really knows who discovered Venus. Did you know that Venus's Sun Sets in the east and Rises to the West?
Mars is a planet much like Venus, very bright, no-one really knows who discovered mars and is also near the sun! Mars has enormous Volcanoes, and several lines crossing each other.all of mars' moons are named after mythical creatures.
Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system, Jupiter isn't very bright. Jupiter's Famous feature is a 'great red spot', the great red spot is a storm that has been raging Jupiter for a long time, the storm is sometimes watched from earth.Did you know that Jupiter has a striped atmosphere
Saturn is the 6 th planet from the sun, Saturn has 64 moons ! With many Spectacular rings ,Saturn is clearly seen in the night sky. Saturn is the 2nd largest planet in the solar system. Saturn has many small moons, titan is Saturn's largest moon.
William Herschel discovered Uranus , surprisingly he discovered Uranus using a telescope. He Argued what he would name it, eventually he agreed on a name. With 21 moons, dark, narrow rings and it sits on it's side , Uranus is a very odd planet.

Johann Gottfried Galle, Heinrich Louis d'Arrest, Urbain Le Verrier and John Couch Adams used maths to find Neptune ! They had trouble figuring out Neptune's Orbit. Neptune's Largest moon (Triton) was discovered at the same time as Neptune

Pluto is now classified
as a dwarf planet
Ceres is the largest asteroid in the asteroid belt. Ceres was discovered in 180. Ceres orbits the sun completely every 4.6 earth years and a day on Ceres is 9 earth hours.
