Astrological Planets –There are eight planets in the Solar System. In order of increasing distance from the Sun, they are the four terrestrials, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, then the four gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. Pluto was discredited by some...but I'm not buying it! lol

In Western astrology, the location and movements of the astrological planets, sun and moon are major influences of the traits associated with the zodiac signs. The exact position of the planets,…

NASA VIDEO: Close-Up of Pluto's Moon Charon --Does It Harbor a Buried Ocean? ☼ The time-lapse “movie” of Pluto and its largest moon, Charon, below was recently shot at record-setting distances with the Long-Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft. The movie was made over about a week, from Jan. 25-31, 2015. It was taken as part of the mission’s second optical navigation (“OpNav”) campaign to better refine the locations of Pluto and Charon...

If the icy surface of Pluto's giant moon Charon is cracked, analysis of the fractures could reveal if its interior was warm, perhaps warm enough to have maintained a subterranean ocean of liquid water, according to a new NASA-funded study.

♥ Current solar system ~ although we may not experience it - I love the use of the term " current". Lol Tjh

Want to feel humble and completely insignificant? Stop for a moment and think, just think, how tiny Earth is in our Solar System, and it is but a dust mite in the Universe!

Saturn's rings : This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 19 degrees above the ringplane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on April 10, 2017.  The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 680,000 miles (1.1 million kilometers) from Saturn and at a sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 128 degrees. Image scale is 43 miles (69 kilometers) per pixel. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute)

Saturn, second largest planet of the solar system in mass and size and the sixth in distance from the Sun. In the night sky Saturn is easily visible to the unaided eye as a non-twinkling point of light. When viewed through even a small telescope, the planet, encircled by its magnificent rings, is arguably the most sublime object in the solar system. Saturn is designated by the symbol ♄. -- Encyclopedia Britannica

Saturn’s Rings -  Thanks to NASA’s Cassini Space Probe This image of Saturn, back-lit by our sun, reveals previously unknown layers of rings. From distance the rings look ordered and tidy. However, up close, Saturn’s rings are very complex. The spacecraft has been making repeated dives into the ring belts to study their properties. It has discovered completely empty regions where moons have formed and dense regions which transmit waves through ripples of debris.  Credit: NASA/JPL/Cassini

Saturn’s Rings - the Cassini Space Probe Thanks to NASA’s Cassini Space Probe astronomers are now able to produce the most detailed maps of Saturn’s rings in history. This image of Saturn, back-lit by our sun, reveals previously unknown layers of.

All five visible planets will appear together in the morning sky early next year – from about January 20 to February That hasn’t happened since

Uranus is the third largest planet in the Solar System. The atmosphere of Uranus is composed of hydrogen, helium, and methane. The methane in the atmosphere absorbs red light giving the planet a blue-green color. Uranus maximum distance from the Sun is 3 billion km. Uranus minimum distance from the Earth is 2.6 billion km. The diameter of Uranus is 51,488 km. Uranus is the coldest of the planets even though Neptune is further away from the Sun. The planet is the second least dense after…

Dione Crescent As it departed its encounter with Saturn's moon Dione, Cassini sailed above an unreal landscape blasted by impacts. The rising Sun throws craters into sharp contrast and reveals steep crater walls.  At the far right, a medium-sized crater is bisected by a fracture, revealing a cross section of the impact site.  The seven clear-filter images in this mosaic were taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Oct. 11, 2005, at distances ranging from of 21,650 to 25,580…

The Maine Solar System Model:  Aroostook County, in Northern Maine, is building a 40 mile (64.6 km) long scale model of the solar system, at a scale of 1 mile equaling the distance from earth to sun. The model extends along Route 1, between the University of Maine at Presque Isle campus and the Houlton Information Center at the end of I-95. The model has ten major components, those being the sun and the nine planets from Mercury to Pluto, with moons for Earth, Saturn, Jupiter (4) and Pluto.

This simulated view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft shows the expected positions of Saturn and Earth on July 19, 2013, around the time Cassini will take Earth's picture. Cassini will be about 898 million miles (1.44 billion kilometers) away from Earth at the time. That distance is nearly 10 times the distance from the sun to Earth.

Cassini Spacecraft Photographs Earth from Saturn on July 19

In late September, 2013, the Cassini spacecraft took this lovely picture of Saturn from a distance of 2.3 million kilometers (1.5 million miles). It wasn’t quite directly behind Saturn as seen from the Sun, so the planet itself is a crescent, seen at a steep angle. (via Slate)

Distance of planets from the Sun in astronomical units (AU). Earth is the std unit & is one AU from the Sun, so an AU equals 93 million miles - the distance of the Earth from the Sun. Saturn is 9.5 AU from the Sun.
