Planets of Our Solar System “ Our solar system officially has eight planets and one star: the Sun. The discovery of an object larger than Pluto in 2005 rekindled the debate over whether such objects,.

NASA’s Juno Spacecraft will arrive at Jupiter in the next few day after nearly five years in space. While it’s purpose is primarily to study Jupiter’s origins, interior structure, deep atmosphere and magnetosphere, it’s worth remembering Jupiter is also host to the largest and some of the most interesting moons in the solar system. Lets …

The Sun or Sol, is the star at the centre of our solar system and is responsible for the Earth’s climate and weather. The Sun is an almost perfect sphere with a difference of just 10km in diameter between the poles and the equator. The average radius of the Sun is 695,508 km (109.2 x that of the Earth) of which 20–25% is the core.  Image Credit: SOHO/EIT

Neptune is the 8th planet from the Sun and the smallest of the gas giants. Neptune was the first planet found by mathematical prediction after unexpected change in Uranus' orbit were observed. Neptune is named after the Roman god of the sea. The blue coloring is the result of methane in the atmosphere. The winds are nine times faster than those on Earth and believed the strongest in the solar system. | Image: Steve Albers, NOAA/GSD

Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and due to its proximity it is not easily seen except during twilight. For every two orbits of the Sun Mercury completes three rotations about its axis and up until 1965 it was thought that the same side of Mercury constantly faced the Sun. Thirteen times a century Mercury can be observed from Earth passing across the face of the Sun in an event called a transit, the next will occur on the 9th May 2016. This dataset was created using data from the…
