2 The Planets Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto

3 Mercury Closest planet to the Earth Smaller than Earth Wrinkled surface No moons Closest planet to the Earth Smaller than Earth Wrinkled surface No moons

4 Venus Almost the same size as Earth Very thick cloud cover Cloud cover traps in the sun’s heat Hottest average temperature of any of the planets No moons Almost the same size as Earth Very thick cloud cover Cloud cover traps in the sun’s heat Hottest average temperature of any of the planets No moons

5 Earth The temperature, weather, and atmosphere are perfect to keep us alive! One moon-name Luna Has a wide variety of landforms including mountains, rivers, lakes The temperature, weather, and atmosphere are perfect to keep us alive! One moon-name Luna Has a wide variety of landforms including mountains, rivers, lakes

6 Mars Very similar to Earth Scientists think it once had rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans Today - water is only found: –In frozen polar caps –Underground Very similar to Earth Scientists think it once had rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans Today - water is only found: –In frozen polar caps –Underground

7 Jupiter Has a great red spot which is a giant storm –Raging for 300 years No solid surface –Hydrogen and Water At least 63 moons Has a great red spot which is a giant storm –Raging for 300 years No solid surface –Hydrogen and Water At least 63 moons

8 Saturn Has rings 169,800 miles wide –As thick as a football field Smaller than Jupiter Clouds of Methane and Helium 34 moons Has rings 169,800 miles wide –As thick as a football field Smaller than Jupiter Clouds of Methane and Helium 34 moons

9 Uranus Very odd planet! - spins on its side Large rocky core (may contain diamonds) Possible ocean of water Almost identical to Neptune Very odd planet! - spins on its side Large rocky core (may contain diamonds) Possible ocean of water Almost identical to Neptune

10 Neptune “The Great Dark Spot” - Giant storm Discovered in 1846 –Needed modern technology 6 thin rings 13 moons “The Great Dark Spot” - Giant storm Discovered in 1846 –Needed modern technology 6 thin rings 13 moons

11 Pluto A dwarf planet Recently added back 3 moons –Largest moon is Charon Considered double system –Pluto and Charon almost same size A dwarf planet Recently added back 3 moons –Largest moon is Charon Considered double system –Pluto and Charon almost same size
