NASA Shares Stunning Photos of the Solar System: Sun, Planets, and More

JAKARTADAILY.ID – Some of us are familiar with the Sun and Moon, because they can be seen with our eyes. Meanwhile, Earth, the planet where we live, has never been seen by many from outer space, let alone the other planets, the large family of the Solar System.

Well, there is good news from NASA, or the independent agency of the United States Federal Government responsible for the civil space program, as well as aeronautics and space research.

They have just shared beautiful photos of the big family of our Solar System, starting from the Sun, Planet Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, to Uranus. Photos and descriptions of our Solar System were shared by NASA via their Instagram account on Sunday (10 December 2023).

In NASA’s explanation, they shared a photo of the Sun with the explanation: The Sun shines brightly in the dark of space, with bursts of orange radiating from its surface. (Credit: NASA/Goddard/SDO)

Second, Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, moving around it every 88 days. The planet is gray, and its cratered surface is almost completely lit, with a shadow cast over its left side. (Credit: NASA/APL/CIS)

Third, Venus is covered in a thick atmosphere that traps heat. The runaway greenhouse gas effect makes it the hottest planet in the solar system at 900°F (475°C). Venus appears subtle in shades of white, cream, and brown, partially illuminated in the darkness of space. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech).

Fourth, Planet Earth is our home and the only known location of life in the universe. He appeared in black space, with a blue ocean, white clouds, and brown land. The Moon’s gray horizon stretches across the bottom of the image. (Credit: NASA).

Fifth, Mars is inhabited entirely by robots (as far as we know). Mars appears red-brown, with deep ravines stretching across the planet’s equator. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech).

Sixth, Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. This gas giant is famous for its iconic storms that swirl in white, red, pink, blue and brown. (Credit: NASA, ESA, and A. Simon)

Seventh, Saturn is not the only planet to have rings, but no other planet is as complex as these. The rings are likely made from fragments of destroyed asteroids, comets and moons. Saturn and its rings stand out against the darkness of space in shades of brown and blue. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SSI/Cornell).

Eighth, Uranus is an ice giant that rotates almost 90 degrees and was the first planet discovered with a telescope. Uranus appears pale blue in black space. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech).
