What is the name of the largest planet

It happened because of that. the density of gases inside of it are incredibly low. Actually, in our Galaxy the number of stars is estimated at least 200 billion. White ovals on Jupiter limited circumferential zones. however, they can interact and form a region of chaotic clouds. On the Photo from a Space telescope named Hubble. made in ultraviolet rays. auroras appear as an annular zone around the poles of the planet. At the very least. its atmosphere is mostly hydrogen. The picture is composed of images. cameras made by Galileo using three filters. and shows. how it will look ancient rotating system of clouds. if you fly right over her. Most people go to work in the office. but my dream is to work at home.

Can you believe it. that many centuries ago.

The largest planet in the Solar system — Jupiter.

The largest planet of the Solar system The largest planet of the Solar system is.

Pluto is a planet or not. it was formulated the concept of determining Liberona the sky recently, a completely new object, a reddish point. which is very weakly visible. And that is what the scientist William Herschel was able to determine the rotation period of the planet. Instead of the Sun in our Solar system or somewhere on the outskirts. where it will not be visible. However by weight, it is second largest planet in three times. Continue reading

The discoverer of the ninth planet


They dived to the bottom of hell, under the thick neon-methane atmosphere of Pluto. Flew in the snow storms of ammonia, every second fearing a break in the dark about huge needles durable as steel, water ice. They managed to find an area where there are mountains. The mystery of Pluto has been solved at last — this planet belongs to our Solar system. She captured her during the journey of the Sun through the Galaxy.

Amateur astronomer William Herschel, discoverer of Uranus

The discovery of Pluto, which for a long time officially considered the ninth planet of the Solar system, has its own history. Before the advent of telescopes humanity were well known five celestial bodies called planets (from the Greek for “Wanderers”, “wandering”): mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn. During the four following centuries managed to open two more major planets, Uranus and Neptune. Continue reading

Found the largest planetary system

Astronomers at the Australian national University has discovered the largest known planetary systems. Therein, except for the Central star has a large planet.

This planet makes a complete revolution around the sun in nearly a million years. This gas giant is at a distance of one billion kilometers from the star, which exceeds in 140 times the distance between Pluto and the Sun. Reported by the BBC.

Thus far, there are only a few of these planetary systems.

The exoplanet, which received the designation 2MASS J2126-8140 has a lot of 12-15 Jupiter. It was discovered in the programme of observations of young stars and brown dwarfs in the immediate galactic environment of the Sun. Astronomers came to realize that they see not two independent object at the same distance from the Sun is about 100 light years away, a planetary system.

“We were very surprised by the discovery of an object with such a relatively small mass so far from the Central star. Unlike Solar, this system could not occur from a huge gas-dust clouds,” says Dr. Simon Murphy from the Australian national University. Continue reading
