1 * There are 8 planets in our solar system, and one dwarf planet. * Our sun is in the middle of our solar system.

2 * The sun makes up 99.86% of our solar systems mass. * The sun will blow up in 500 billion years.

3 * Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. * It has a very low surface of gravity. * It is about the size of Earths moon. * Mercury is covered with craters.

4 * Venus is the brightest planet in our solar system. * It is the 2 nd planet from the sun.

5 * All people live on earth. * Earth rotates on its axis. * Earth is the largest of the inner planets.

6 * Mars is very cold. * There is a robot on Mars. * Mars is called the Red Planet because it looks really red from Earth.

7 * Asteroids are basically dirty snow balls. * The Asteroid Belt lies between Mars and Jupiter. * The Asteroid Belt separates the Inner and the Outer Planets.

8 * Jupiter is the 5 th planet from the sun. * It is also the biggest planet in our solar system.

9 * It is the 6 th planet from the sun. * Saturn is named after the Roman God. * Saturn is also known for its rings.

10 * Uranus is the 7 th planet from the sun. * It is the 3 rd largest planet in our solar system.

11 * Neptune is the 8 th planet from the sun. * Did you know that Neptune is 4 times as big as Earth?

12 * It is the only dwarf planet in our solar system. * Pluto is not a planet. Not that Pluto!!!!!

13 * Comets are made out of dust and ice, kind of like a dirty snowball. * They are very small members of our solar system. * When they come close to the sun, they start to evaporate.

18 Our Galaxy is called the Milky Way. The Milky Way has more than 200 million stars.

19 * The Moon travels around Earth. * The Moon has a diameter of 2000 miles.

20 * The Earths atmosphere experiences millions of meteors everyday!!!! * Meteors are easier to see during the lower light conditions of night.

21 * Gravity keeps Earth and other planets in our Solar System in orbit around the Sun. * It also keeps the Moon in orbit around Earth.

22 * The Inner Planets of our Solar System are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. * The Inner Planets orbit closer to the Sun.

23 All the Outer Planets in our Solar System are Jupiter, Saturn Uranus, and Neptune. They are the farthest planets in our Solar System away from the Sun.

24 I hope you enjoyed my slide show on our Solar System!!!!!!!!!!!
