Does the sun move?
The sun moves... The Sun rises in the East and sets in the West. The sun appears to be following you every step, Though the sun doesn't actually move. The sun
Sky Science

March 18,2015
In the grade 6/5 class the past couple weeks in Science we have been talking about Sky Science--Such as space, Stars, The Sun, The Moon, Asteroids and the planets in the solar System. We have also been talking about what emits light and what reflects light.

Does the moon Look the same each night?
No the moon does not look the same each night the moon goes through phases. The moon is the same but the sunlight that emits onto the moon makes the Phases of the moon. The sun's light is now shining on the other half of the visible face of the moon.Finally, a week later, the moon is back to its new moon starting position. The sun always lights one half of the moon.
The Moons Phases

Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest planet in the Solar System, after Jupiter.
Saturn is classified as a gas giant. Saturn has a hot interior, reaching 11,700 °C at the core.Saturn is covered in a deep layer of metallic hydrogen, an intermediate layer of liquid hydrogen and liquid helium and an outer gaseous layer.
Look at earth is seems so big to us but it is actually pretty small compared to Jupiter saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
Did you know that all planets have a symbol?
What other Planets have moons?

Mars -2 small asteroid-sized Moons Phobos and Deimos.

Venus - doesn't have any moons.

Jupiter - at least 63 known moons.

Saturn - 31 known moons. Saturn also has many icy moons. These moons are called "shepherd moons" and use their gravity to keep the small ring particles in a stable orbit.

Pluto(Dwarf planet) - 3 Nix, Charon and Hydra

Ceres (Dwarf planet) has no moons

Mercury - no moons.

Uranus - 27 moons that we know of.
Why is Pluto not considered a Planet?
in order for something to be a planet it has to follow the requirements
1.an object (Planet) that orbits the sun and is large enough to have become round due to the force of its own gravity. In addition, a planet has to dominate the neighborhood around its orbit.

Pluto has been demoted because it does not dominate its neighborhood.
Since I know that shooting stars enter Earth what causes them to enter Earth?
A "shooting star" has nothing at all to do with a star! These amazing streaks of light you can sometimes see in the night sky are caused by tiny bits of dust and rock called meteoroids falling into the Earth's atmosphere and burning up.
Since the moon looks red during a total lunar eclipse why does this effect happen?
During a total lunar eclipse, the Earth lies directly between the sun and the moon, causing the Earth to cast its shadow on the moon. If Earth did not have an atmosphere, then, when the moon was entirely within Earth’s shadow, the moon would would appear black and invisible.
