The planets are (clockwise from upper left) Saturn, Uranus, Earth, Jupiter, Mars and Neptune. The orange planet at upper centre is Venus and the small brown planet at centre is Mercury. The small blue planet at bottom left is Pluto. Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars (the inner planets) are dense and rocky. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are gas giants composed mainly of hydrogen and helium. Pluto, the smallest and most distant planet from the Sun, is also thought to have a rocky core.
