Sandy Hook Sunset by Sister72 on Flickr

  • The Sun is the center of our solar system. 
  • The sun is a star. 
  • It is also a burning ball of gas. 
  • The sun keeps all the planets in orbit with its gravitational pull. 
  • If the sun was to burn out all the planets would spin out of orbit and become frozen in the vast open space. 
  • It is so important to the solar system because without it there would be no heat, no orbit and no US. 
  • This is why the sun is so important it keeps everything alive.

giugno 1.2007 Luna piena, full Moon, Vollmond by pizzodisevo (therapy - terapia - Therapie ) on Flickr

  • The first planet in our solar system is Mercury
  • Unfortunately, there was no picture of Mercury available so we are going to call this mercury. 
  • Mercury is the closest planet to the sun and oddly enough it is not the warmest planet. 
  • The temperature of Mercury is very hot in the day but very cold at night. 
  • It is the second smallest planet and too close  to the sun for there to be life on it.

Venus by chrismeller on Flickr

  • This is Venus the second planet from the sun. 
  • Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system. 
  • The reason Venus is the hottest planet and not Mercury, is because Venus is almost all greenhouse gases. 
  • Venus is also too hot for there to be life on. 
  • If you were to find the relative size of all the planets by using fruits Venus would be a green grape.

Earth, courtesy Apollo 17, and probably the most reproduced image of all time by woodleywonderworks on Flickr

  • Earth is the third planet from the sun. 
  • It is at just a good enough distance from the sun for to be able to have enough warmth and coldness for us to live on. 
  • It takes 24 hours to rotate once on its axis and 365 days to make one full revolution around the sun. 
  • It has a strong gravitational pull which keeps us on the Earth. 
  • It has one moon which is always orbiting the Earth.

  • Mars has a moderately cold temperature. 
  • Technology such as the mars rover has been sent into space to learn more about this planet.
