Test your celestial knowledge   

 

The Nine Planets


Above are the nine planets in our solar system.
Can you name each of them?


For each planet, guess the name and then click on its picture for the answer. They are pictured in their order from the sun, left bottom to top right.  

As a bonus, you'll get lots of interesting facts about that planet.  Good luck!
