How many planets are there in our solar system?
Nine, right? Or is it eight? Maybe it’s ten, or twelve, or more.

Take a tour to explore the variety of objects that populate our solar system.

Along the way, we’ll examine each planet individually and then step back to look at the big picture: rocky worlds compared to gas giants and more.

What is a planet, anyway? The answer may surprise you.
