How about a nice little survay of your favoritte planet, moon, asteroid, comet, Kupier object, or even all the above.
Let's hear what your favoritte object is, why it is, and perhaps a few facts about it.
My favoritte planet is Uranus, at a distance of 1.78 billion miles, or 2.87 billion kilometers. It takes sunlight 2 hours and 42 minutes (give or take a few) to reach this distant sentenal.
It appears green in color because of methane gas in the upper atmosphere which absorbs red light. It has rings much like Saturn except they are much darker.
A Uraniun day is 17 hours, and 14 minutes. It takes 84 years to circle the Sun once.
The most unique thing about Uranus is that it's axles is a 60 degree angle which places it almost on it's side.
That, it's remoteness, it's rings, and it's larger moons is why I like it best.
Uranus has 24 (last I knew) known moons. It's largest, Titania is one of my favorite moons.
Titania is 1578 Km. in diameter, which makes it the 17th largest object in the Solar System. Pluto is the next larger, and Saturns 2nd largest moon Rhea is the next smaller.
My other favorite moon is Neptune's moon Proteus. Discovered by Voyager 2 in 1989. It displaced Neried as the 2nd largest. Even though larger, it is as dark as soot, and much closer to the planet then Neried and Triton, so it is often lost in Neptune's glare. It is 500 miles in diameter, and orbits Neptune in a little under 27 hours. It is my other favorite because I've always had a soft spot for the underdog, which Proteus is, having had another moon take it's position for 40 years.
My favoritte asteroid is called Chiron. It orbits the Sun in a highly eliptical orbit, between Saturn and Uranus, coming close to the orbits of both.
I find Quanor the most intriging of Kupier objects. Only Pluto is larger in the Kupier belt.
I missed both Halley and Hale/Bopp comets. The only one I've seen is Kohootek (Proabley spelled wrong) discovered around 1973.
Think I'll save some of the facts for other fans of the space bodies I favor the most.
