The first thing that comes to mind when you think of a solar system is the planets, but you can get more information from a few of the other planets that orbit the sun.
Here’s a look at some of the planets in the solar system that have been discovered.
Jupiter, Jupiter’s neighbor.
This rocky planet orbits in the inner solar system between Neptune and Saturn.
The planet is the second largest planet in the Solar System, and it orbits at a distance of about 5.4 billion kilometers (3.6 billion miles).
It’s thought that Jupiter’s atmosphere is a mix of hydrogen and helium.
The atmosphere is composed of carbon dioxide, methane, ethane, nitrogen and water.
Scientists have not yet determined whether the planet has oceans.
Scientists think Jupiter is about 3.5 times the mass of Earth, and orbits in front of its parent star every 4.3 years.
Neptune, Neptune’s neighbor and sister to Pluto.
This is a smaller planet, about 1.6 times the size of Earth.
Its orbital period is less than two years.
The gas giant orbits at the end of the solar cycle, about 14 hours ahead of the sun and 3.3 billion kilometers from Earth.
Neptune is a gas giant, and its largest moon, Charon, is the largest body in our solar system.
Uranus, one of the four planets of our solar neighborhood.
Uranos satellites are located at a very low altitude in the southern sky.
The world’s largest planet, the planet Uranus is the sixth planet in our Solar System.
Uranuses orbit about 25 times farther from its parent than Neptune, which is 4.5 billion kilometers away.
It is one of three planets that orbits the sun with a relatively low orbit, but Uranus orbits at an altitude of just 2.2 million kilometers (1.8 million miles).
Uranus has an atmosphere made up mostly of helium and carbon dioxide.
Uranians surface is covered in a thick layer of ice and seas, and the atmosphere is mostly water vapor.
Uranium is the third most abundant element in the Earth’s crust.
Uranius is also one of four rocky planets, and is the fourth largest planet.
Uranites are considered a sister to Neptune, and are similar in size to Earth.
Uranis has two moons, Chara and Vesta, and two rocky planets orbiting the sun, Uranus and Neptune.
Pluto, a dwarf planet in its own right.
Pluto orbits in our neighborhood at a height of about 4.8 billion kilometers.
Its surface is mostly ice and dust.
Pluto has an ocean and a rocky surface.
Its most famous moon, Nix, is also a small moon and is about half the size and mass of Pluto.
Pluto is about 4,000 times smaller than Pluto and its orbit is tilted in a similar way to that of Neptune.
It takes about 8 hours to complete a full day on Pluto.
Neptune and Uranus are siblings.
Neptune orbits in between Neptune’s parent and companion stars, and Uranuses orbits in with them.
Neptune has a smaller surface than its sibling, Uranis, but Neptune orbits at about 30 times the distance from its main star to its inner solar orbit.
Uranous moons, like Charon and Haumea, are the only ones in the outer solar system not located in their parent stars.
Neptune’s rings are the brightest part of its atmosphere.
Uran and Neptune are not related to each other.
Uranes moon is the only one not located on its parent.
Neptune was discovered in 1856.
It was not the first planet discovered in our galaxy, but it was the first to orbit the outer planets.
Pluto and Uranos are cousins.
Pluto was discovered near the center of the Milky Way galaxy, and was named after the Greek god of the underworld.
Uran was discovered more than 10 million years ago in the constellation Sagittarius.
Uran’s moon is named after Pluto.
Pluto also has a sister.
Pluto’s moons are named after Greek gods.
The moon Europa is named for Jupiter.
Neptune formed in the heart of the largest asteroid belt in the universe.
The asteroid belt is composed mostly of rocky objects that orbit outside the Solar Planets gravity field.
Pluto formed in a region of space between Neptune, the moon and the dwarf planet Neptune.
Pluto contains the most liquid water on Earth.
Pluto had a rocky moon.
Pluto isn’t a planet, but instead a dwarf moon.
It’s a very common name for moons, so it’s a bit of a mystery why they weren’t named after famous characters.
