Caption: Solar system planetary orbits, artwork. The Sun is at centre, with planetary orbits marked by blue ellipses. The four rocky planets of the inner solar system, moving outwards from the Sun, are: Mercury, Venus, Earth (with its Moon), and Mars. The asteroid belt is next, followed by the four gas giant planets of the outer solar system (all with their largest moons shown): Jupiter (lower left), Saturn (lower right), Uranus (upper left, ringed), and Neptune (top left). Beyond Neptune is the Kuiper Belt (top left corner). In the background at right is the Milky Way. The distances between the planets is not to scale.
