Mercury!

Mercury  has different features than earth.  The colour of Mercury is light and dark gray and the shape of it is not a circle but it is an oval. Isn't that weird? And did people know that it has three separate layers. It's made of Iron and is also rocky and dense.


It takes Mercury a long time orbit around the sun. it takes a long time to make one orbit. It spins really slowly. Is that weird? It takes less than a year ( 88 earth days ) for it to orbit around the sun. It can orbit more than 1 time in a year.


What do people think the temperature is at
Mercury at day time and night time? Well it's colder at night time than day time at Mercury. It’s -173c at Mercury when its night time and 400c at day time on Mercury.


Mercury is the smallest and innermost planet in the solar system. Mercury's axis has the smallest of any of the Solar System's planets (about ​130 degrees). It is not the hottest but closest.


Mercury is the innermost planet in the galaxy.

Mariner 10 is the only person to go to Mercury. He went on a spacecraft to Mercury in space so he could explore Mercury for earth.
