Caption: Solar system. Artwork of the eight planets orbiting the Sun (upper left), as seen from near the orbit of Uranus (lower right). The orbits of the planets are shown as blue lines. Distances and sizes are not to scale. In their order from the Sun, the planets are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars (the small, rocky inner planets), Jupiter (centre left), Saturn (lower left), Uranus and Neptune (top left), the outer gas giant planets. As of August 2006, Pluto (not shown) is no longer a planet. The asteroid belt (between Mars and Jupiter) is also seen, and the Milky Way galaxy is in the background.
