Solar system

The Solar System for Kids ages 3-8  We have so much to learn Scuba Jack dive fans!  The solar system consists of the Sun and everything that orbits, or travels around the Sun. This includes the eight planets and their moons, dwarf planets, and countless asteroids, comets, and other small, icy objects. It’s fun to explore and learn about the solar system. For instance, how old do you think the solar system is? Anyone know the answer to this? Well, the Solar System is 4.6 Billion Years Old. Wow, that’s amazing…. How long does it take for the Sun to reach the earth? Can you guess? The answer is,  Sunlight Takes Around 8 Minutes To Reach Earth.  The Earth is located 93 million miles away from the Sun, traveling at the speed of light (186,282 miles per second), sunlight is able to cross this vast distance in around 8 minutes 20 seconds. That’s Awesome! Imagine traveling 93 million miles in 8 minutes and 20 seconds. There is so much to learn, join in the fun! We love our adventures with you!
