Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. Whereas the smallest and closest planet to the Sun is Mercury.
The planets of the Solar System are named after Roman and Greek gods, with the exception of Earth, launched by NASA’s Infrared Astronomy Education website, Cool Cosmos. This nomenclature is in keeping with the nature and facts covering the planet.
Following is the sequence of names of planets in the Solar System along with explanation of the history and facts of nomenclature:
1. The planet Mercury
The order of the names of the planets of the first solar system is Mercury. The closest distance of the planet Mercury to the Sun is 57,900,000. Is
The diameter of the planet Mercury is 4.879 km. Mercury has a dark brown rocky surface covered with a thick layer of dust that is believed to be composed of igneous silicate rock and dust.

The color of Venus is light yellow. This color is created by the dense atmosphere of carbon dioxide and sulfuric acid clouds that cover the planet Venus.
Venus is also called the morning star. This is because the planet Venus is one of the brightest objects in the night sky.
Venus is very bright because its thick clouds reflect most of the sunlight that reaches it (about 70%) back into space, and because Venus is closest to Earth, it can be seen in the sky. Venus is often visible within a few hours of sunset or before sunrise.
