Transcript of Our Solar System
A look at the Sun
INNER PLANETS A CLOSER LOOK
As large as Uranus
Some white clouds appear in Neptune's air
Moons: 8 maybe more
Orbit: 164.8 years
Rotation: 16.11 hrs
4 times larger than Earth
Chemicals in the air make it look green
Sideways planet tilted on its sides
North and South pole face Sun for half of its orbit
Orbit: 84.01 years
Rotation: 17.24 hrs
Moons: 21 maybe more
Made of gas
11 times larger than Earth
Clouds are mostly orange and white
Wind blows Orange clouds in 1 direction and white clouds in the other.
The Great Spot (storm) is 2 times Earth
Moons 28: 2 covered with ice and water underneath
Orbit: 11.86 years
Rotation: 9.92 hrs.
Water, land and Air
Clouds made of water drops
Orbit: 1 year
Rotation: 1 day
Moon : 1 (man 1st set foot in 1969)
Moon Theory : An object collided with Earth making it bigger than it was but a chunk flew off and became the moon.
Ps: I love earth!! Our planet..
Nearly as large as Earth.
Covered with white clouds made of acid.
Is made of rocks from volcanoes and
Surface covered by lava.
Orbit: 226.4 days
Rotation: 243 days
Rings made of rock, ice and dust
Clouds are butterscotch color
Moons: 30 maybe more
Rotation: 10.66 hrs
Orbit: 29.46 years
Covered with rusty colored rock and dust
It has a canyon that is almost the distance across the USA
Large volcanoes higher than Mt. Everest
Not enough air for humans its atmosphere is too
Orbit: 1.88 years
Rotation: 24.62 hrs
Side facing Sun twice as hot as oven (800 F), side facing away is very cold 3 times than Antarctica(-297 F)
Thousands of craters
No Moons or Rings
Orbit: 87.66 days
Rotation : 58.66 days
Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars make up the inner planets of the solar system.
Have rocky surfaces, closest to the Sun.
Scientists use space probes to collect data.
Made of rock and ice
Moon is ½ as large as Pluto
Orbit: 247.7 years
Rotation: 153.3 hrs
Other Dwarf Planets: CIRES AND ERIS
Aug. 2006 Pluto was degraded to a dwarf planet.
PLUTO (DWARF PLANET)
Asteroids: rock and iron objects that orbit the sun.
Meteoroides: pieces of rock that break off asteroids
Meteors: meteoroides that burn up in Earth's atmosphere.
Meteorites: meteoroides that reach Earth's surface.
Comets: chunk of frozen gases, rock, ice and dust.
Stars: huge balls of gas that produce heat and light. They are classified by color, temperature, brightness, and size.
billions of stars and objects that orbit them
Our galaxy (the Milky Way Galaxy is considered a Barred Spiral)
