Caption: Solar system. Illustration of the Solar System showing the planetary orbits and a comet (centre left). In order of distance from the Sun the planets are Mercury (nearest), Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter (upper left), Saturn (lower right), Uranus, Neptune (lower left) and Pluto. The asteroid belt lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Most of the planets orbit the Sun in the same direction and in a similar plane, reflecting the Solar System's formation from a disc-shaped rotating nebula of gas and dust about 4.6 billion years ago.
