1  Our solar system has 8 planets and a dwarf planet, so we have 9 planets in all.  Our sun is in the middle of the solar system.  By Courtney Sindoni

2  The sun is the largest object in our solar system.  The sun will eventually blow up in 500 billion years.  The sun is bigger than all the planets put together.

3  Mercury is the closest planet to the sun.  Mercury is also as big as Earth’s moon.  Mercury have no moons.

4  Venus is the second closest planet to the sun.  Venus is also the same size as Earth.  Venus has no moons.

5  Earth is the only planet that has life and water.  It is the third planet from the sun.  Earth also rotates on its axis.  It takes Earth 24 hours for a day and 365 ¼ for a year.  Earth has one moon and it is called Luna.

6  Mars has a robot on it and it is very cold.  Mars is the 4 th planet from the sun.  Mars’s nickname is the “The Red Planet,”  Mars has three known moons, and two of them are called Deimos and Phobos.

7  The asteroid belt runs between Mars and Jupiter.  The asteroid belt is made of metal, and rock.

8  Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun.  It is by far the biggest planet.  Jupiter has at least 62 moons that are very small.

9  Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun.  Saturn has no known solid surfaces.  Saturn has at least 62 moons currently.

10  Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun.  Uranus rolls on it’s side and rotates around the sun.  Uranus has 27 moons.

11  Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun.  Neptune is one of the windiest places in the solar system.  Neptune has 13 known moons.

12  Pluto is a dwarf planet.  It is the ninth planet from the sun.  Pluto has 2 moons.

13  Comets are a ball of rock, ice, and frozen gases.  A comet’s orbit brings it close to the sun.

14  The moon orbits around Earth.  It has many craters on it from asteroid that land on it.

15  Constellations are a group of stars that make a picture in the sky.  The Big Dipper, The Little Dipper, and The Orion are constellations.

16  Black Holes have 3 main parts.  The outside is called the Outer event Horizon.  The middle is called the Inner Event Horizon.  The center is called the Singularity.

17  The universe is made of dust, gas, clouds, galaxies, and stars.  The universe is very big.

18  The galaxy we live in is called “The Milky Way.”  “The Milky Way” is the most significant galaxy to humans because it is our home sweet home.

19  An asteroid is a large piece of rock in space.  Some asteroids can be as small as a grain of sand.  Asteroids called Ceres are very large.

20  Stars fill most of the sky at night.  They are bright, and if they are big enough they will shine up the hole sky so you can see at night.  A couple of stars have been found 100 or 200 times larger than the sun.

21  A meteorite is a steak of light in the sky.  Some people call them “shooting stars,” or “a falling star.”

22  Every planet has an axis.  An axis is an imaginary line through the center of all planets.  All planets rotate on their axis.

23  The Milky Way is the galaxy that we live in.  The Milky Way holds all of the planets and stars that are in our solar system.

24  Gravity is what holds us on the ground.  If we had no gravity we would be floating in mid- air.

25  Our atmosphere is all around Earth.  It is right by the crust of the Earth.

26  Craters are big holes in the ground.  The big holes are formed by asteroids that come down on Earth, that is why they are called “Craters.”

27  Gaseous is a type of planet.  The gaseous planets are the outer planets.  They are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.  Jupiter  Saturn  Uranus  Neptune

28  Terrestrial is a type of planet.  Earth is a terrestrial planet.  The terrestrial planets are the inner planets.  They are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and Pluto.  Mercury  Venus  Earth  Mars

30  A galaxy is made of gases, dust, and stars.  Earth is 75% water, so that means 25% of Earth is not water.  The galaxy we live in is called The Milky Way.  Our galaxy has inner planets and outer planets.  Our universe is everything that exists in space.  There is 4 inner planets and 4 outer planets.  Arthromeres say that they have found other stars that are 100 or 200 times larger than the sun, but they are not in our galaxy.  All the planets have days and years with all different times as the other planets.

31  THANKS FOR WATCHING!!!!!!  I HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT ON OUR SOLAR SYSTEM!!!!
