Meeting the Planets!
Hello! I am a star!
I am just one of billions and billions of others in space.
My friends told me that you guys haven't met the planets yet! They are awesome!
Let me introduce you!
Hello, I'm the Sun!
I am technically not a planet, but I am the center of the solar system. I'm made completely out of gas and can get as hot as 27
Because of that, humans will never be able to visit me... but that's okay! I have the other planets, stars, and moons to keep me company!
Nice to meet you! Tell Mercury I said hi!

I am the smallest planet in the solar system, but I am also the
No planet is faster than me!
I'm the closest to the Sun, we are like best friends! I hope you and I can be best friends too!

Anyways, you're pretty cool, see ya later!
Hey hey hey! I'm Earth!
You look familiar... Do you live on me? Nice to finally meet you face to face!
I'm sure you already know, almost 8
people live on me, it gets hard to keep track of everyone.
A little bit about me... I am the only planet with liquid water! In fact, that water makes up most of my surface!
Anyways, I gotta go, but I'll see you later! Peace out!
