Planets

Any of the eight large celestial bodies in the solar system that revolve around the sun and shine by reflected light; Mercury,Venus,Earth,Mars,Jupiter,Saturn,Uranus and Neptune;In order of proximity to the sun;Viewed from the constellations Hercules,all the planets rotate around the sun counterclockwise direction.

Now im going to tell you some individual information about each of the eight planets.The information is going to include the radius,volume,length of day ect.
