Transcript of Our Solar System

Our Solar System The Sun Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Sun
The Sun is the largest star in our solar system.

Every planet in our solar system revolves around the sun.

The Sun provides the energy needed for all life on Earth.

Fun Fact: The Sun's surface temperature is
6,000 degrees celcius!
Mercury

Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun.

On mercury you weigh alot less than you do on Earth! This is because it has less gravity. If you weigh 30 kilograms on Earth you would only weigh 12 on Merucry!

If you look closely at the morning sky you can see Mercury from Earth. To us it looks just like a bright star, but its really a planet.

Moons: There are no moons on Mercury.

Fun Fact: There is alomost no air on Mercury!


Venus

Venus is the second planet from the sun.

Venus is very much like earth in size but we could never live there as it is so hot. You could cook a meal in the air of venus in only a couple of minutes!

Moons: Venus has no moons.



Earth

Our planet!

The Earth's temperature, weather, atmosphere and many other factors are just right to keep humans, anmials and plants alive.

Earth takes 365 days to orbit the sun. Thats one year!

Moons: Earth has one moon, her name is Luna.

Mars

Mars has a tempurate closest to earths than any other planet.

Scientists believe that once upon a time Mars had rivers, lakes, streams and maybe even an ocean!

Moons: Mars has two moons named Deimos and Phobos.

Fun Fact: Mars has the biggest canyon's and volocano's than any other planets!






Jupiter

Jupiter has a giant red spot. This giant red spot is really a storm that has been going for 300 years!

Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System and is the 5th planet from the sun.

Jupiter has no solid surface! You could never stand on Jupiter.

Moons: Jupiter has at least 63 moons, but there could be more!



Saturn

Saturn has several hundred rings around it.

In many ways Saturn is similar to Jupiter, but it is much smaller. Under the clouds of methane and helium the sky gradually turns into liquid until it becomes a giant ocean of liquid chemicals.

Moons: Saturn has 34 moons!

Uranus

Unlike any other planet Uranus spins on its side. It is possible that this is becuase something large crashed into the side of Uranus at some point.

It is believed that their is an ocean undrneath Uranus' clouds.

And in its rocky core there may be trillions of diamonds!

Moons: Uranus has 27 moons.


Neptune

Neptune is the furtherest planet away from the sun.

Just like Uranus it is believed that under Neptunes clouds there is an ocean.

Neptune was not discovered untill 1846.

Neptune has 6 rings which orbit the planet.

Moons: Neptune has 13 moons, but because Neptune is so far away and we cant see it as well it may have more.
