Caption: Planets and the Sun next to a scale, artwork. The planets of our solar system have been drawn to scale and placed next to each other on a grid. One small division of the grid represents 10,000 kilometres. The eight planets are shown, with their moons, in order of their distance from the Sun (top). From left to right they are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. The distances shown between them, and their orientation, are not accurate. In August 2006, Pluto (not shown) became a Dwarf planet. The Sun contains 99.9% of the mass of the solar system.
