Transcript of The Planets


is a little
bigger than

can reach


800 degrees
named after the
Roman god of
messaging because
of how fast

mercury orbits
the sun
appears to ascend

then stop,
reverse direction,
then stop and
continue ascent

Diameter: 3,030 miles
Density:5,427 kg/m^3

Minimum Distance From
Earth: 48 million miles
Number of Satallites/rings: 0
the atmosphere is
destroyed and rebuilt
2nd densest planet
after Earth
the tilt of the axis is
177-178 degrees
it's the planet with an
orbit the shape of a circle
the atmosphere is so strong
it reflects the sun and causes
its phases
the dense atmosphere
makes it so meteors no
reach the surface, so
there no craters
it is one of the brightest objects in the
sky so at dawn or twilight is the best times to see it
Earth is sometimes called it's sister
because of their similarities
Diameter: 7,522 miles
Density: 5,243 kg/m^
Minimum Distance from Earth:
25 million miles
Number of Satellites/Rings: 0
the sun used to be
25 percent weaker which
caused the ice age
in the ocean the water that gets
too warm causes the coral to
sometimes die
it's one of the only planets that has
a surface that is broken into pieces
called plate tectonics
the aurora (the northern lights)
is caused from the action of
molecules and atoms
Diameter: 7,926 miles
Density: 5,515 kg/m^3
Number of satellites/rings: 1
Mars . . .
has humongous dust storms
has a reddish orange color
rust in the soil causes the color
evidence of water once being on the planet
scientists used to be absolutely sure that there was life on the planet
there is a canyon that is 25,000 miles long and 4 miles
deep (the Grand Canyon is only a mile deep)
surface temp. range from -113
degrees to 0 degrees
Diameter: 4,217 miles
Density: 3,933kg/m^3
Minimum Distance from Earth: 155 million miles
Number of Satellites/Rings: 2
the great red spot is just a complex cloud
named after the greek god Zeus
the moons are named after people that
were associated with Zeus
one moon has the possibility of water
that is environmentally friendly
there is aurora lights on the both poles
Diameter: 88,736 miles
Density:1,326 kg/m^3
Minimum Distance from Earth: 365 million miles
Number of Satellites/Rings: 63 known
The Red Planet...
has an aurora on both poles
it has 62 moons and a complex ring system
there is sulfur in the atmosphere that gives
it it's yellow colors
named after the roman god of
agriculture and time
the axis is almost exactly
straight up
Diameter: 74,000 miles
Density: 687 kg/m^3
Minimum Distance from Earth:
746 million miles
Number of Satellites/Rings:
62 moons and a complex
ring system
like mars it has a Dark
Spot and a Red Spot
the atmosphere made completely
of methane gas which gives it it's
almost completely in it's side
although it's on it's side the
magnetosphere is still standing almost
straight up
has stripes like mars they are just
hard to see
the magnetic field still stands up
straight even though the
planet is sideways
Diameter: 32,000
Density: 1,270 kg/m^3
Minimum Distance from
Earth: 1.6 billion miles
Number of Satellites/
Rings: 27 moons/partial
ring system
cause of it's blue color it is
named after the roman god
Neptune, god of the sea
it's the coldest planet and
farthest from the sun
a lot of ice and gas in
interior layers
Diameter: 30,760
Density: 1,638 kg/m^3
Minimum Distance from
Number of Satellites/
Rings: 13 moons and faint
has a moon almost as big as itself
named after the god of the underworld
made only of ice and rock unlike most
other outer planets
the atmosphere is constantly being
destroyed and rebuilt
Diameter: 1,485 miles
Density: 1,750 kg/3^m
Minimum Distance from
Earth: 2.66 million
Number of Satellites
/Rings: 3
