Do you need a light-speed tour of the entire solar system all in one lesson? Home School Astronomy’s Tour of the Solar System can accommodate you. Only half our solar system is filled with planets. Find out what the other half is full of. Did you know that we are not the only solar system of planets in the galaxy?
Mars has long haunted mankind with its red glow and tantalizing proximity. Humans have known about Mars since before recorded history and almost all cultures named it after their gods of war because of its blood red color. Mars boasts a volcano so large that it peeks into space and a canyon so long it looks like a scar on the planet even from Earth. Oh yeah…and we’ll talk about Martians.
The Sun on a beautiful day is peaceful and nurturing. But if you step outside the protection of the Earth's atmosphere the sun becomes a deadly furnace of ignited nuclear fuel. Discover how the Sun affects the Earth with aurora and magnetic storms and take a close up look at the furnace of the Sun where you will find solar tornadoes the size of North America and temperatures of more than 25 million degrees.
Lost in the flames of the Sun is the planet Mercury, stripped of everything by the violence of the Sun but nonetheless speeding around it every 88 days.
We see the moon in the sky every night, but how well do we know her? Did you know that someday you could look up and never see the moon? Did you know some astronauts volunteered to go and never come back? Explore the many ways the moon affects the Earth and its people. You’ll never see the moon the same again.
