Transcript of Joshua H.(Solar System)

The sun is hotter than 5,000 degrees fahrenheit
The sun is 92,960,000 miles away
The sun is 4.6 million years old
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and due to its proximity it is not easily seen except during twilight.
For every two orbits of the Sun, Mercury completes three rotations about its axis and up until 1965 it was thought that the same side of Mercury constantly faced the Sun. Thirteen times a century Mercury can be observed from the Earth passing across the face of the Sun in an event called a transit, the next will occur on the 9th May 2016.
Mercury can be -173 to 427°C on the surface
Venus has 0 moons so far
Venus is 462°C on the surface
it was discovered by Babylonian astronomers
it takes 365.26 to spin all the way
The other seven planets in our solar system are all named after Roman gods or goddesses. Although only Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn were named during ancient times, because they were visible to the naked eye, the Roman method of naming planets was retained after the discovery of Uranus and Neptune.
The Earth’s rotation is gradually slowing:
This deceleration is happening almost imperceptibly, at approximately 17 milliseconds per hundred years, although the rate at which it occurs is not perfectly uniform. This has the effect of lengthening our days, but it happens so slowly that it could be as much as 140 million years before the length of a day will have increased to 25 hours.
It has 2 moons
They are called Phobos & Deimos
It takes 1.88 Earth years to orbit all the way around
It is 1,898,130,000,000,000,000 billion kg in mass
It has 4 known rings
