The eight planets in our system – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – all have unique properties that set them apart from the others
While you may have the nine planets in our solar system which all changed in 2006 when astronomers decided that Pluto is indeed a "dwarf planet".
The eight planets in our system – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – all have unique characteristics that sets them apart from the others.
Saturn is recognizable by its iconic rings, while Mars is known as the "Red Planet" for its distinct orange-red color.
In the meantime, Neptune, farthest from the Sun, can be immediately spotted for its 27 moons because of its bright blue color and Uranus.
Space organizations, including NASA and the European Space Agency, have over the years taken breathtaking pictures of all eight planets and allowed us to look into the unknown worlds.
We have compiled a list of some of the most impressive pictures.
