Our solar system has one sun in the center and eight planets orbiting it and more than 80 moons and thousands of asteroids. Our solar system is in a galaxy called the milky way. Does the moon have a real name?
Our solar system has eight planets and one dwarf planet.
Mercury,Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and the dwarf planet Pluto. Today I will tell you about Mercury Venus Mars and Pluto.
Although Mercury is closest planet to the sun it isn’t the hottest planet Venus is the hottest planet. That is because Venus has an atmosphere that traps the heat on the planet. Mercury doesn’t have an atmosphere so the heat can bounce right off of it. An atmosphere is like a divider that separates the oxygen on the planet from the gas in space.
Mars looks red because it has a thing called iron oxide all over its surface but we call it as rust. That is what gives it the red colour. Mars is the home of a lot of mountains and volcanoes.
Pluto is a dwarf planet that was named by an 11 year old girl when she spotted a new planet. Pluto is not a planet anymore because it is too small to be a planet. Now that we have new technology we can see that one of Jupiter's moons is bigger than pluto.
To answer my question, yes the Moon does have a real name its name is Luna. People call it the Moon because it is easier to remember and moon is a word that means a natural satellite orbiting the earth. Our solar system has one sun 8 planets and one dwarf planet.
