Transcript of PLANETS!!!

-The Earth takes 1 year, 6 hours, 45 minutes, and 48 seconds or 365.26 Earth days to rotate around the sun
-The radius of Earth is 6,371 km
-Equatorial diameter is 12,756
-Polar diameter is 12,714 km
-Circumference of Earth at the equator is about 24,902 miles, but from pole to pole---meridional circumference---Earth is only 24,860 miles around
-Earth's mass is 5,972,190,000,000,000 billion kg
-Known moons: 1
-Notable moons: The Moon
-Earth's surface temperature is -88 to 58 degrees Celcius
-Currently there are approximately 2,465 artificial sattelites orbiting the earth,though Eartth only has 1 natural sattelite
-The actual surface colour is an iron grey colour, but as seen from space is an orb of blue with patches of white, green, and brown
-Most of Earth's surface, about 70 percent is covered with water, and the remaining 30 percent is made up of 7 continental landmasses
-The radius of the Sun is 696,000 km
-The Sun's diameter is 1,392,684 km
-The circumference of the Sun at the equator is 4,370,005.6 km

-The Sun has no moons
-The Sun's Surface temperature is 5500 degrees celcius
-It is a common misconception that the Sun is yellow, or orange or even red. However, the Sun is essentially all colors mixed together, which appear to our eyes as white
-When we see the Sun at sunrise or sunset, when it is low in the sky, it may appear yellow, orange, or red, but that is only because its short-wavelength colors (green, blue, violet) are scattered out by the Earth's atmosphere, much like small waves are dispersed by big rocks along the shore. Hence only the reds, yellows, and oranges get through the thick atmosphere to our eyes
