The sun is the star at the center of our solar system! The sun makes up almost all of our Solar System’s mass! It is a yellow dwarf star orbited by 8 planets and two dwarf planets.
Mercury is the first and the smallest planet in the solar system. While Mercury is closer to the Sun than any other planet, it is not the hottest planet in the solar system. It is littered with craters.
Venus is the second closest planet to the Sun in the solar system and also the second largest terrestrial planet in this system. Venus has no satellites. Similar to Mercury, a day on Venus lasts longer than a year. Venus is the hottest planet in the Solar System.
Our home planet, otherwise known as Earth, is the largest terrestrial planet in the Solar System. Being the 3rd planet from the Sun, the Earth is also the only terrestrial planet with a large satellite, the Moon. The earth is also the only planet not named after a Greek or Roman God. The most unique feature of the earth is that it contains life like you.
