Planets are solid bodies that are smaller than stars and unlike stars, planets do not produce their own heat and light. Planets can be seen because the light from the sun reflects off of them. There are nine planets that orbit the star of the solar system we live in. Only six planets are bright enough to be seen from Earth without a telescope: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus. The temperature, atmosphere, surface, length of days and nights differ on each planet. The planet we live on, Earth, is the only planet known to support life yet the ability for the Earth to support all living creatures is in jeopardy.
