Every planet of the solar system lying in its orbit revolves round the sun. A tip of Sun’s rays even can create disaster to an extent of 160 kilometer stretch. Few mountains found on the Earth, actually are the pieces of the planet Mars. One light year is equivalent to 10,000 billion miles. Our solar system is shifting towards Hercules constellation of stars at a speed of 19.3 kilometer per second. The sky of the earth is blue; the sky of Mars is pinkish-orange because of the dust present in the atmosphere. For thousands of years man had no knowledge about the solar system. He had believed that earth alone was the center point of the universe.

Among the planets of the solar system only Venus and mercury are not the planets who have their own moons, rather earths one satellite is moon, mars has 2 moons, Jupiter has 63 moons, Saturn has 60, Uranus has 27 and Neptune has 13 moons.
