Planets & Distance
Essential Questions: What are the major components of the universe? (SPI 0601.6.1) How does the distance of objects in space from Earth affect how they appear? (SPI 0607.6.2)
Terrestrial Planets Mercury Venus Earth Mars
Terrestrial Planets The inner planets closest to the Sun. “Earth-like” planets because they are small, dense, and rocky.
Mercury Closest planet to the Sun. Has no moons.
Venus Almost the same size, mass, and density as Earth. Earth’s “sister planet” Hottest planet in the solar system due to the greenhouse effect and a dense atmosphere.
Earth Known as the oasis in space and has the right condition for plants and animals.
Mars “Red-planet” Cold Site of the Olympus Mons-highest mountain in the solar system.
Gas Giants Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune
Gas Giants The outer planets. Very large and do not have any known solid surfaces.
Gas Giants vs. Terrestrial Planets
Jupiter The largest planet in the solar system. Has a permanent storm on its surface-Great Red Spot. Has at least 61 moons.
Saturn Planet with the largest rings.
Uranus Tipped on its side at a 90 degree angle.
Neptune Known as the blue world.
Pluto Now known as a dwarf planet. Does not fit into characteristics of terrestrial or gas.
Distance The closer a planet or object to Earth the larger it looks. The father away a planet or object is to Earth the smaller it looks.

Our Solar System Created by Tina Maloy.
The solar system is a huge place with lots of planets.
The Nine Planets BY KRYSTA BOOTH.
How are the planets alike and/or different? What factors exists on Earth that make life possible here, but unlikely on any other planet? Which planets.
Slideshow P1: Introduction to the planets. Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. It is about the size of our Moon and looks rather like it.
OUR SOLAR SYSTEM BY KALID NASR.
By Keith Lehman Mercury has no moons. Mercury is 1/3 the size of Earth. On Mercury, a day is 59 Earth days long. Mercury is a rock planet.
Rank the Planets. All objects in the solar system are visible because of reflected light from the sun! Only stars emit light! Light.
