The Planet Quiz Show  


Venus, Earth, Jupiter, and Saturn. The sun is a star, producing its own light by changing hydrogen into helium deep within its core, while the moon is Earth’s only natural satellite orbiting our planet.

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are the six planets that can be seen with the unaided eye. Here they are, all visible on the evenings of May 1 and May 3, 2002 just south of Allentown in Coopersburg, PA. Notice especially how rapidly Mars and Saturn have changed positions and how Mars and Venus have moved closer together. The sky is always changing. Digital photography by Gary A. Becker.
