Place in space
Mars is the 4th planet in our beloved solar system, past our planet and the Asteroid belt, which is chock-full of asteroids waiting, waiting to strike at a unwary spacecraft who cant see it lying there.Anyway, not getting off-track, Mars is just before the massive Jupiter, which is the biggest of our planets, but the sun is sill more than one-thousand times bigger.
On Mars there are the most severe dust storms, which can last for months and cover the entire planet!
The reason for this is that its orbit is highly elliptical therefore creating extreme seasons.
The moons of Mars are the terrors themselves- Phobos and Deimos.
They were named after th Latin words meaning fear and panic.
