Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System, about 1,400 Earths could fit into its volume and it masses 2.5 times other planets combined. Jupiter is like a gas giant planet, it has no solid surface but it is only gas and liquid. This planet has 16 Moons and also a dusty ring system. Its ordinary liquid is hydrogen that lies above the metal. Hydrogen and helium gases form an atmosphere that surrounds the planet itself.
|The second largest planet, Saturn. It is a large ball of gas and liquid topped by clouds. Saturn has three layers of clouds that contain of same gases as Jupiter's cloud, but with a layer of haze above them. Saturn's rings are by the brightest, a glorious sight through telescopes. The rings mat look solid but it actually contain of chunks of ice and rocks, ranging from dust to icebergs. It orbit Saturn's equator like a swarm of moonlets. It is also has the largest family of Moon in the Solar System, there are 18 Moons|
|Uranus is the third largest planet in the Solar System. Its most remarkable feature is it appears to lie on its side, so that the first one pole and then the other points to the Sun as it moves along its orbit. Uranus has 17 Moons and a faint rings. Its clouds contain methane ice crystals and appear blue - green because methane gas in the atmosphere above filters out other colors. Uranus has also 11 rings which around the planet|
|Neptune is 30 times farther from the Sun than Earth. It is four times wider than Earth. There are 8 Moons along with faint rings. There is more methane gas in the highest levels of Neptune's atmosphere than there is on Uranus. This makes Neptune's clouds appear bluer. The gases in Neptune's atmosphere are hydrogen, methane and helium.|
|Pluto orbitS at least circular of all the planets. The Sun appears a thousand times fainter than it does from Earth but it is still much brighter than the stars. Its temperature is about -220°C. When it is close to the Sun, its surface warms up and enough for some of the ice to turn into gas and form a thin atmosphere. The gases will freeze again and make a new layer of ice on the surface|
