01 The Solar System PIA10231, mod02

    Newer Older

    This image is modified from NASA's Photojournal Home Page graphic released in October 2007, catalog ID: PIA10231 (NASA/JPL).

    I have modified the image by adding the asteroid belt, Kuiper belt, the dwarf planets (Ceres in the asteroid belt, Pluto and Makemake in the Kuiper belt, and Eris beyond the Kuiper belt), and colorized the orbits of the planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune). The image has also been cropped to show only the top half of the complete image.

    The image was created for a www.scitechlab.com/ blog post on the Northern Lights.

      You've definitely made the NASA graphic much more informative! It worked very well for illustrating an article I wrote about Pluto.
