High five? No? :,-(

Dood earth is a woman...."Mother Earth?" DUH!!!! :-b

But jokes about Uranus are always good....that didn't sound right....move along nothing to see here. :-B

With Uranus involved, it doesn't matter what gender Earth is. O:-)




Ok, no more, I swear. :-o

Good because Uranus is getting worn out and tired. 8-o

Saturn on the sun side, Neptune on the outer space side.

Not really, he didn't answer the question. Only one planet can be the closest planet to Uranus and that planet is Saturn! ;-) :-b


Boo Yah!!!! Can you feel that? Huh, can you? Can you? :-D

Well, if we wanted to be especially technical we'd have to figure out where they are in their orbits at any particular time. If we looked at a top-down view of the solar system, and Saturn and Neptune were both on the "right" side of the sun and Jupiter and Uranus were on the "left" side, Jupiter would be closer by several hundred million miles.

Oribital period really has to be taken into account in these questions, as does angle to the Plane of the Ecliptic.

And yes, I can feel it. :-D

This is a decent attempt at conveying the scale of the solar system. Just the local planets we live among occupy vast distances. It's so weird how big our "little" solar system is.

That's pretty cool. This one is even more amazing as it gives you an idea of just how big the planets really are:
