10.8.17 Out of This World

Our solar system consists of a star we call the Sun, the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Yes, I said Pluto. Take that International Astronomical Union! It also includes the satellites of the planets; numerous comets, asteroids, and meteoroids; and the interplanetary medium. This week all of our poetry and music will feature elements of our solar system.
