Spanish Solar System for Kids
Our solar system (el sistema solar) consists of our star, the Sun (el Sol), and everything bound to it by gravity – the main eight planets (ocho planetas) named Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune; dwarf planets such as Pluto; dozens of moons; and millions of asteroids, comets, and meteoroids.
Beyond our own solar system, we have discovered thousands of planetary systems orbiting other stars in the Milky Way.
