We live in the Solar System, along with many other planets. There are eight planets in all. The four inner terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. The four outer gas giants are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. All of these planets orbit the sun, which is at the center of the Solar System.

Mars is the last terrestrial planet. The surface of the planet is only red because it is mostly covered with iron oxide, mostly commonly known as rust. Mars also has a thin atmosphere and only two moons.
Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. The big red spot on the planet's surface is a storm that's been raging since the 17th century. It doesn't have a solid surface such as the terrestrial planets closer to the Sun. Jupiter also has 67 moons.

Saturn's core is likely made of iron and nickle. The overall planet is made of hydrogen and has prominent rings that circle the planet. The core is surrounded by a solid, liquid and gaseous hydrogen. Saturn has 62 moons and is the second largest moon.

Uranus is usually called an "ice giant." The atmosphere is so cold that the "ice" contains water, ammonia and methane. Uranus is the only planet in our solar system that rotates sideways. Uranus has 27 moons.
