Orbits the Sun in 88 days, thus one year is 88 "Earth days"
Spins around in 58 "Earth days", thus one day on Mercury is 58 days long. Mercury The Planets of Our Solar Sytem 3 Mercurys= 1Earth Venus The second planet from the Sun
One "day" on Venus is 243"Earth days" long
Orbits around the Sun in 225 "earth days", that means a year on Venus is 225 "Earth days" long. Venus spins backwards
Mercury is not as hot as Venus, even though Mercury is closer
Venus' nickname is the "Evening Star" Fun Facts! It is too hot for plants and animals to live on Mercury Third planet from the Sun
Spins around in 24hrs, thus one day is 24hrs
It takes 365 days for the Earth to orbit around the Sun, thus one day is 365 days Earth Can You Believe This? Nicknamed the "water planet" The earth's temperature is Just right for animals and plants to live.
70% of Earth is covered by the water The fourth planet in the our solar system
A day on Mars is 24 hours and 36mins, only about a half hour longer than our day.
Mars has a very long year, it takes about 687 "Earth days" to orbit around the Earth. Mars Mars is nicknamed the "Red Planet" because of its color
A year on Mars is twice as long as on Earth What do you think about this? Did You Know? Jupiter is the fifth planet in our solar sytem
It takes Jupiter 12 "Earth Years" to make one orbit around the Sun.
It only takes 10hrs for Jupiter to spin, thus Jupiter days are only 10 hrs long Jupiter Jupiter is made up of gas
Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system
The big storm on Jupiter is called the "red spot" Extra! Extra! Read All About It! "red spot" The sixth planet from the Sun
Takes Saturn 30 " Earth Years" to orbit the Sun
Takes 10 hrs to spin completely around, thus one day is only 10 hrs Saturn Saturn's rings are made out of ice and rocks
Saturn is made up of gas
Saturn's rings are so pretty because of the reflection of the sun off the ice Things You Wish You Knew! Saturn's rings up close Seventh planet in our solar system
Takes 17 hrs to spin, thus one day is 17hrs
It takes 84 "Earth years" to orbit around the Sun once, thus a year on Uranus is 84 of our years. Uranus Uranus is made up of mostly ice
Uranus is very cold, due to be so far from the sun WOW! Cold Uranus! The eighth and final planet in our solar system
Spins around in 17hrs, thus a day is 17hrs long
It takes 165 "Earth years" to orbit the Sun, thus one year on Uranus is 165yrs long. Neptune Made up of gas
Has a "great dark spot"
Its white clouds make it look like there are stripes Awesome Information! The "great dark spot" The End!! Sources:
