Description

Build the Solar System Kit in 3D with this kit.

Our Solar System includes the Sun and all the objects that orbit around it due to its gravitational pull.  This includes bodies like stars, asteroids, meteorites, comets, planets and moons.Solar System Kit

Our solar system is located with the ‘Milky Way” galaxy, which has an estimated 400 billion stars.  The sun is actually a massive star, that appears yellow from earth (due to the atmosphere), but it is actually white.  There are 8 planets in the solar system – 4 ‘small’ and 4 large.

Saturn’s rings were discovered by Galileo in 1610.  Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus also have rings, but these rings are not visible from earth; and they were only discovered in 1970’s and 1980’s rings.

Jenny at Hobby Help has a fascinating article about viewing what planets are visible in the night sky; see if you can find the Milky Way and some of thesse planets when looking up at the sky tonight.
