    All the planets in one picture. <<<<<< YES! THEY ADDED PLUTO! I'd like to dedicate an enormous "thank you" for whoever made this.

    Neptune, the outermost planet in the Solar System, cannot be seen from Earth without a telescope or binoculars. It is covered by icy, bright blue methane clouds that whip around the globe at speeds of more than 700mph (1,100km/h). Though its diameter is four times that of the Earth's and it is 17 times as massive, it is less dense and doesn't have a solid surface. Eleven moons orbit Neptune, the largest of which is Triton.

    Mercury - being the smallest planet, appears as a morning star and an evening star, but is much more difficult to see than the other inferior planet, Venus. At its brightest, Mercury is technically a very bright object when viewed from Earth, but it is not easily seen in practice because of its proximity in the sky to the Sun.
