The Big Blue Marble Earth, our home planet, .All of the things we need to survive are provided under a thin layer of atmosphere .That separates us from the uninhabitable void of space. Earth is made up of complex, interactive systems that are often unpredictable. Air, water, land, and life.

Venus reaches its maximum brightness shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset, for which reason it has been known as the Morning Star or Evening Star.

The Sun The Sun is a very hot big star that keeps our home Earth warm. If you were to land on the sun you would melt straight away like an icecube. Trust me is not a pretty sight.

Mercury is the innermost and smallest planet in the solar system, orbiting the sun once every 87.969 Earth days. Comparatively little is known about Mercury; ground-based telescopes reveal only an illuminated crescent with limited detail.

Mars The Red Planet Mars is a small rocky body once thought to be very Earthlike. Like the other terrestrial planets—Mercury, Venus, and Earth—its surface has been changed by volcanism, impacts from other bodies, movements of its crust, and atmospheric effects such as dust storms. It has polar ice caps that grow and recede with the change of seasons; areas of layered soils near the Martian poles suggest that the planet's climate has changed more than once, perhaps caused by a regular change in the planet's orbit. Martian tectonism, the formation and change of a planet's crust, differs from Earth's. Where Earth tectonics involve sliding plates that grind against each other or spread apart in the seafloors, Martian tectonics seem to be vertical, with hot lava pushing upwards through the crust to the surface. Periodically, great dust storms engulf the entire planet. The effects of these storms are dramatic, including giant dunes, wind streaks, and wind-carved features.

Nicole and Alex's project on Planets!!!

The Ringed Planet In 1610, An astronomer Galileo Galilei was the 1st to gaze at Saturn through a telescope.He saw a pair of objects on either side.In 1659, Another astronomer Christian Huygens, using a better,powerful telescope than Galileo's, proposed that Saturn was surrounded by a ring.

Jovian Giant The most massive planet in our solar system is Jupiter which forms a kind of miniature solar system. In fact, if it had been about eighty times more massive, it would have become a star.

Neptune The eighth planet from the sun, Neptune was the first planet located through mathematical predictions rather than through regular observations of the sky. (Galileo had recorded it as a fixed star during observations with his small telescope in 1612 and 1613.)

Unusual Uranus Once considered one of the blander-looking planets, Uranus has been revealed as a dynamic world with some of the brightest clouds in the outer solar system and 11 ringsposter yourself

Like other members of the system Pluto is composed primarily of rock and ice and is relatively small.This planet is the smallest of all and is most farest away from the sun.They also say that Pluto is not a planet because it is a dwarf planet.
