the smallest planet
Pluto lost it's ranking as a planet in 2005
It is now considered a "Dwarf Planet"
Planets must be round due to gravity
Planets must maintain their own orbits
The "Great Red Spot" a storm that has been raging for over 200 years
Has no moons
Derives it's energy from Nulear Fusion
2 Hydrogen atoms combine to form a Helium atom
Earth's Sister Planet
Has a Prograde Rotation
Turns clockwise when seen from the Pole
A Relatively Small and Young Star
About 5 Billion Years Old
Earth's Sister Planet
No Moons

The Sun
Also know as Sol,

Red Planet

A quick journey through the Solar System
Please fasten your seatbelts and place your tray in the upright position
The Center of our Solar System
A relatively young and small STAR
closest to the sun
Has two (2) moons
Olympus Mon
largest volcano in the solar system
Outer - Gas Planets
Composed primarily of
Hydrogen and Helium
Generally have
low densities
rapid rotations
deep atmospheres
lots of moons
There are four (4) Gas Giants
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus & Neptune
Largest Planet in the
Solar System
Has the most mass of all
the planets combined
63 known moons including the Galilean moons
Great Red Spot
The "Ringed Planet"
2nd largest planet in the solar system
This planet is thought
to be still forming
known moons
7th planet from the sun
Has 27 moons
Has rings
are at a vertical angle)
The planet is tipped
on its side
8th & Farthest planet
from the sun
Has visible clouds
on the surface
Also has rings, these rings are only visible
by passing spacecraft: Voyager 2
13 known moons
Hey, what happened
to Pluto?

Once considered
the 9th planet
Taken off the planet
list in
Did not fit the new
criteria for being called
a planet
Now considered a
"dwarf planet"
along with numerous other objects
in the solar system
Pretty big solar system, huh?
