Artist's Description

Gotta love my kids!!!

Mercury, named by the Romans after the fleet messenger of their gods, is the closest planet to the sun. It revolves around the sun quickly, but rotates on its own axis so slowly that one day on Mercury is like one year on Earth. Mercury has no moons and is so small that Jupiter and Saturn have moons larger than Mercury. It is only visible through a telescope from Earth during sunset and sunrise close to the glare of the sun.
Because Mercury has almost no atmosphere, in the sunlight the temperature rises above 750 degrees (f) and on the dark side of Mercury it can get colder than -300 degrees (f).
