Solar System
  1. The Eight Planets
    1. Mad Vamipires Eat Mangoes And Jump Straight Up Noses.
      1. A planet is something which orbits a Star
        1. The Sun is our Star. There are eight planets that orbit our star
          1. The Sun is really big meaning it has a big Mass. This also means its gravity is really strong.
            1. The pull from the Sun's gravity keeps all of the planets in their orbit.
          2. The Planets
            1. Inner Planets
              1. Mercury
                1. Venus
                  1. Earth
                    1. Mars
                      1. All these Planets come before the Asteroid Belt and are closer to the Sun.
                      2. Outer Planets
                        1. Jupiter
                          1. Saturn
                            1. Uranus
                              1. Neptune
                                1. All these Planets come after the Asteroid Belt and are further away from the Sun then the Inner Planets.
                              2. Pluto is no longer a Planet. It is a Dwarf Planet.
                                1. The Planets all move in elliptical orbits (egg shaped circles)
                                  1. Heat and Light
                                    1. Planets DO NOT give off heat or light
                                      1. Stars (like the Sun) DO give off heat and light
                                    2. Information About The Planets
                                      1. The Sizes
                                        1. The SMALLEST Planet is Mercury.
                                          1. The BIGGEST Planet is Jupiter by far.
                                          2. The Masses
                                            1. Mercury has the SMALLEST mass.
                                              1. Jupiter has the BIGGEST mass.
                                              2. The Average Distance From Sun (in millions of km)
                                                1. Mercury = 58

                                                                                1. All the others are so far away that they look small and fuzzy.

                                                                                    1. Many other Dwarf Planets like Makemake and Eris are in this belt
