Caption: This image compares the Solar System's eight major planets and the Sun on the same scale. The largest planets are the gas giants Jupiter (right) and Saturn (left, back). Neptune (blue) and Uranus (green) - the so-called ice giants due to their ice-rich makeup - are substantially smaller, but are still much larger than the terrestrial or telluric planets (bottom right). Of these, the Earth is the biggest and Mercury is the smallest. The Sun (background) is around 10 times larger than Jupiter, which is itself about the same size compared to the Sun.
