Our Solar System In Our Solar System By Jorja

The Sun The Sun is in the centre of our solar system, it is a gigantic ball of gas. The Sun is in the centre of our solar system, it is a gigantic ball of gas. The Sun is an ordinary star like all the others, but scientists haven’t found out if any other star has planets, like our Sun. The Sun is an ordinary star like all the others, but scientists haven’t found out if any other star has planets, like our Sun. The Sun produces heat and light around the Solar System, it takes about 8 minutes for light to reach the Earth. The Sun produces heat and light around the Solar System, it takes about 8 minutes for light to reach the Earth. Did you know the Sun is 5.4 million years old. Did you know the Sun is 5.4 million years old. Did you know the Romans named the Sun Sol, and the Greeks called it Helios. Did you know the Romans named the Sun Sol, and the Greeks called it Helios. Did you know that all of the planets in the Solar System are moons to the Sun. Did you know that all of the planets in the Solar System are moons to the Sun.

Mercury Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun. It take 88 days for Mercury to orbit the Sun, and the average distance from the Sun is 57.9 million km.(36 million miles.) Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun. It take 88 days for Mercury to orbit the Sun, and the average distance from the Sun is 57.9 million km.(36 million miles.) Mercury has 0 moons. Mercury has 0 moons. It takes 59 (Earth) days for Mercury to rotate on it’s axis. It takes 59 (Earth) days for Mercury to rotate on it’s axis. Mercury is a rock planet. Mercury is a rock planet. Did you know that Mercury is the smallest planet and it’s hot surface is covered with craters. Did you know that Mercury is the smallest planet and it’s hot surface is covered with craters.

Venus Venus is the second closest planet to the Sun, it is 108.2 million km (67.2 million miles) away from the sun. Venus has 0 moons. It also takes 243 (Earth) days for Venus to rotate on its axis. Venus is a rock planet like Mercury. Venus orbits the Sun in 224.7 (Earth) days. Venus is a similar size to Earth, but it is covered in thick sparkling clouds.

Earth Earth is our home planet. We live 149.2 million km(93 million miles) away from the sun. Earth has 1 moon. 23.93 hours is how long it takes for Earth to rotate on it’s axis. Earth is also a rock planet. Earth’s solid crust is split into plates, drifting plates sometimes collide and pull apart, causing volcanoes and earthquakes. This reshapes Earth’s surface. Our planet has a nickname The Water Planet.

Mars Mars is the planet most like Earth. It takes Mars 687 days to orbit the Sun, and it’s average distance from the Sun is, 227.9 million km(141.6 million miles). Mars has 2 Moons.
