Caption

Surface of Mercury, artwork. Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, has a rocky and cratered surface. It orbits at an average distance of 58 million kilometres, less than half the Earth-Sun distance. The Earth and Moon are seen at upper left, while Venus is seen at centre right. The Sun's corona is seen around the rock at centre. The surface temperature extremes on Mercury are the greatest in the solar system, ranging from 400 degrees Celsius (daytime) to minus 170 degrees Celsius (at night).
