Explore the Solar System

NASA's Solar System Exploration website is a great destination for anyone who wants to learn more about the Sun, the planets & their moons, the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud.

NASA's Solar System Exploration includes interactive globes of a number of the planets and moons. These interactive globes include labels some of the most interesting locations on each planet. If you click on these labeled locations you can view them in more detail using NASA's satellite imagery of the planet or moon. A sidebar panel also opens providing more information about the selected location.

NASA's Solar System website also includes an interactive map of the Solar System showing the orbits of all the planets around the Sun. The planets and Haley's Comet are interactive on the map. If you select any of the planets on the map you can click through to navigate to their dedicated section on the website.
